Beatty does have a subplot about hate and fear of Chinese immigrants being Classic Patricia Beatty historical fiction for girls, from her feel-good/humorous period. Families stick together and (mostly) work together, chance met acquaintances (mostly) help the family to survive. A nice light read, if somewhat dated by the light tone. There is a native american in the story, who doesn't speak English. He's about the same as anyone else to my eyes, but I'm not an expert in Native American culture.

One of my favorite books. I read it when I was in 5th grade and just shared it with my 5th grade daughter she loved it too.

With lots of climaxes this book grabs your attention and doesn't let go until the last page which leaves you hungry for more.

In 1885, Ann Katherine Scott (known as Ann Katie), almost 14, and her 10-year-old brother Jemmy are living in Portland, Oregon, with their mother, a widow whose husband “didn’t leave us much else besides this house and the furniture.” With money going out and none coming in, and no positions available for a former schoolteacher, Mrs. Scott has decided to try her luck in the mining camp of Eagle City, Idaho Territory, though her friends insist it’s no place for “a lady of quality” like herself. So the Scotts sell their house, pack up, and board the train east. Unexpected things begin to happen almost immediately, as they meet Helga Storkersen, “the best and strongest hired girl in the whole Palouse country,” who adopts them as her own. Next they discover that prices in mining camps are scandalously high—and that Eagle City has absolutely no need of a teacher. Before they know it, they’ve established a restaurant instead—in a tent, but it’s clean, with “good, plain, well-cooked victuals” served on clean dishes and set out on tablecloths. And it proves to be a smashing success. As the months pass, they secretly take the part of a fugitive Chinese threatened with lynching, and Helga and Ann Katie grubstake O’Neil O’Neil, a hopeful miner, while Jemmy lends him Timothy Clover, his beloved mule. Mrs. Scott even finds herself with beaux. Then the gold begins to run out. What will become of Helga and the Scotts now? In the end, it’s Timothy the mule who provides the answer. This is one of Patricia Beatty’s best historical novels, with an engaging cast and the real feel of the mining country (readers shouldn’t neglect her note at the back).

Bonaza Girl is a book that will leave who guessing till the end. Their are times when it gets boring but then gets exciting agian! The book is about a widow who takes her two children from the comforts of Oregon to the wild gold country of Idaho to persue being a school teacher. But she runs into one slight problem, there are no children in the gold mines! What she and a swedish lady do changes the city of Eagle city forever. Not to mention their family. All in all Katherine, Ann Katie and Jimmey have a blast running their new business. The story is not a true story but is based on some real people and events that happened. It is based in the 1880's. This is a good book for any adventurers at heart.

I first read this book in 4th grade and reread it several times in one year. I can remember telling my mom all about it because it was based in the Northwest. I loved the way the family worked together to give their mom a deserved surprise. I recently found another book by the author and was reminded of my love for this book. I hope I can find a copy to read to my children and let them enjoy the fun.

Loved this book. We all read it together, ages 9-14, out loud and just loved it. It gives a wonderful picture of the time and the life of those living out in the gold mine areas.
