In 1848, workers constructing a sawmill in California found gold in a riverbed. As news of the discovery spread, hundreds of thousands of settlers from around the world flocked to the former Mexican territory, hoping to make their fortune. Traveling in 1849 by land or sea, the first wave of settlers became known as the "forty-niners." Read this High Low Graphic Book to follow along with one forty-niner family as they make the treacherous overland trip from Missouri to California in search of a better life. Teachers can use this lesson to engage students in a study of situational irony within a story. Use this Graphic Book with 1849: The California Gold Rush at levels O, R, and U.
