Dan Barnett’s review of John Bidwell: The Adventurous Life of a California Pioneer appeared in the Chico Enterprise-Record today. You can read it here.
I’ve been running out in the dark every Thursday morning for the past two months to pick up the paper, hoping his review was in The Buzz. And there it was this morning. Thanks, Dan!
My only quibble with his very pleasing review is that he calls it a book for teens. Teen will enjoy it, so will adults looking for a good short biography of Bidwell, and kids in grades 4-8. It’s probably a bit difficult for most readers in grade 4, but 4th grade teachers will find it invaluable, (if I do say so myself) since 4th grade is when California history is taught.
So if you’ve always wanted to know more about John Bidwell, this book is a good place to start. Contact me at bidwellbook (at) gmail.com, or check your local library!
