Coming to California in search of gold, Scandinavian immigrant John Thompson earns a name in American folklore by making a treacherous journey over the mountains to deliver the mail, an adventure that introduces skiing to the new world.

My first grader liked this book a lot. It's about a pioneer boy who misses his father at Christmastime because his father is digging for gold over on the other side of the Nevada mountains. Snowshoe Thompson is a Norwegian immigrant who offers to ski over the mountains to give the boy's father the message, and take a whole bag of mail back and forth through the terrible snowstorms. Of course all the townspeople think Snowshoe Thompson is crazy, but the boy helps him make the skis and believes strongly that he'll make it through.

The story ends with Snowshoe Thompson coming back with his mail bag and a message that the boy's father will be home for Christmas. My little readers really liked reading about how to make skis, and of course it's wonderful that John Thompson really was a true person. It fits really well with most of the other American history readers on this level (I Can Read Book 3).

It is also nice that one of the morals of the story is that family is more important than riches.

I would have given it five stars, but there were just a few shortcomings. The main one is, there is barely any explanation of the Gold Rush, which was the setting of the book. I realize that some of these readers don't dip into history very deeply, but just tell a tangential story to clue little kids in. But even one sentence that explained why the boy's dad was looking for gold at that time would have been nice. Seems sad to tell a story set around an event that doesn't get any explanation. It comes across as only a story about a Scandinavian immigrant.

Also, as an adult--and this is just a tiny thing--it seemed just a little silly that the solution to the boy's father getting home in time for Christmas was for Snowshoe Thompson to make and bring him some skis. This would mean that Snowshoe Thompson would have to quickly make another trip through the snowstorms, carrying an extra pair of skis, and then get John's dad (who had never skiied before) to make it back through the very treacherous terrain that hardly anyone could cross in the winter except a crazy Norwegian! This was lost on the kids, of course, but for such a realistic story, it had kind of an unrealistic ending.

Still totally worth it though.

Good read for beginning readers. It has real places and people and is good for introducing historical fiction. The illustrations are great!

Excellent book. My Daughter loved it!! It is based on a true story. It is amazing how the character did what he did back then.

This is a great historical story for early readers. Good to lightly introduce them to ideas of Scandanavian settlers, California history, and life before modern transportation. Snowshoe Thompson is an admirable character.
This is an interesting piece of historical fiction about a relatively obscure historical figure in postal history that also describes the beginning use of skis in America. Joe Thompson was from Norway and when it was impossible to cross the Sierra Mountains to deliver the mail one winter he decided to make himself a pair of skis to the delight of his fellow settlers. These strange snowshoes, thus earning Joe the nomenclature "Snowshoe Thompson" amazed the other folks and the idea caught on. A fairly simple story but one that shows how items from the "old country" came to be used in the Americas by settlers and an heroic tale as Joe comes through and saves the day. The illustrations are by the renowned Joan Sandin who has been illustrating since the seventies and has contributed to several books in the "I Can Read Books" series. She does wonderful period piece work and these add greatly to the story.
