therefore it is to be expected that many books will appear several times in different categories' lists...

He's washed up on an island, where he struggles to survive. Then he discovers that he's not alone. His fellow-castaway, Kensuke, keeps his distance at first. But when Michael's life is threatened, he slowly lets the boy into his world. The two teach and learn from each other until, inevitably, they must part ways.

In 1849 the Davis family went to California in a covered wagon to search for gold. The journey is difficult, with rivers, mountains, and prairies to cross, and regular encounters with Indians. Once they reach California, they make friends and begin their search for gold. They learn that prospecting is hard work, and there is no guarantee of success. In the end, the Davis family does not strike it rich in a monetary sense, but they find they have what they truly want - a new home in a beautiful new land. -Contains songs of California-
