Description

Deep beneath the floors of every library is a secret few people know; here, in this unknown place of the library, are the books that pull the reader into another world, and show him what events inspired a writer to create a famous book.

Thomas Weaver, a boy just trying to write a report about the gold rush, has discovered the secret, and his life is forever changed. Thomas goes back to California, 1865 to discover the West that Mark Twain knew.

Thomas thought he would go back in time, talk to Twain, and then return to the real world. He quickly learns, however, that the book has other plans. He cannot return to the real world until he has experienced the West.

Along with his adventurous cousin, Will, Thomas sees firsthand a bank robbery, learns how to pan for gold, talks to drifters who left everything because they hoped to strike it rich, narrowly escapes death twice, and ultimately learns that there is more to the California Gold Rush than just gold.

    A boy named Thomas is doing a report on gold mining, he is in the library and just believes it's boring. Until he comes across a book, he finds his way into a upside down with floating books library, and to cap it all off it has a four eyed frog named Fox! Join Tom as he travels back in time, in an idea with no limits, join him as he steals from robbers, hides in caves and has a picnic of Baked Beans (not in correct order) I really enjoyed reading this iBook and am giving it five stars! I would recommend this book to all the people of the world who have these things; 1. A good reading habit 2. Any gadget that has iBooks A few spelling mistakes, but a good story line, really worth reading I have honestly enjoyed this iBook, my iPod was useless and now finally something worth it, READ THIS IBOOK please, A long story line that drags you all the way
