Jane Johnson Buck, an author whose love of books was sparked in her childhood when her grandparents made sure she received books as gifts for her birthdays and special occasions, has completed her new book "Those Who Dared": a gripping book about those who risked everything in search of a better life in the west. Those precious gifts she received in her youth eventually led to her writing her own stories.
Published by Newman Springs Publishing, Johnson Buck's alternately historic and relatable tale takes readers along for the journey as young Clementine and her family leave everything they know behind and head to the promised land of California.
"Follow Clementine and be prepared to laugh and cry as she grows to womanhood," Johnson Buck writes.
As the story begins, "Somewhere in the early 1800s, the gold rush to California began. Everywhere, men and women dropped their work, left their homes, and came to California. Many a hardship had to be conquered before they reached their destination.
"That is how the wagon train started from Providence, which is located on the banks of the Mississippi; they called themselves the 49ers. Altogether, there were 108 women and children and 98 lusty men."
Readers who wish to experience this remarkable journey can purchase "Those Who Dared" at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iBooks Store, Amazon, or Barnes & Noble.
