Summary

A New York Times bestseller and National Book Award longlist selection

The first book in a new trilogy from acclaimed New York Times-bestselling author Rae Carson. A young woman with the magical ability to sense the presence of gold must flee her home, taking her on a sweeping and dangerous journey across Gold Rush-era America. Walk on Earth a Stranger begins an epic saga from one of the finest writers of young adult literature.

Lee Westfall has a secret. She can sense the presence of gold in the world around her. Veins deep beneath the earth, pebbles in the river, nuggets dug up from the forest floor. The buzz of gold means warmth and life and home--until everything is ripped away by a man who wants to control her. Left with nothing, Lee disguises herself as a boy and takes to the trail across the country. Gold was discovered in California, and where else could such a magical girl find herself, find safety?

Rae Carson, author of the acclaimed Girl of Fire and Thorns series, dazzles with the first book in the Gold Seer Trilogy, introducing a strong heroine, a perilous road, a fantastical twist, and a slow-burning romance, as only she can.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "*Starred Review* Leah Westfall (known as Lee McCauley when she is disguised as a boy) can sense gold, a talent both valuable and dangerous. After her parents are murdered and their gold stolen, and her uncle Hiram makes known his less-than-honorable intentions, she heads west from her Georgia home, hoping to meet up with her best friend Jefferson in Independence. Their plan is to travel to California, but it's a horrible, tedious journey lightened by gradually developing friendships between Leah and her wagon mates and the slowly blossoming romance with Jefferson. There's a lot going on here, from slavery, animal cruelty, and Indian bashing to heart-stopping medical procedures and gender and class issues. But Carson is known for her world building and strong female characters, and she handles everything with carefully constructed, well-researched aplomb. It's a book that illuminates an important segment of American history as effectively as some textbooks, sustaining YA interest through adventure, fantasy, and romance. With Leah's journey to California complete and the quest for gold just begun, readers can anticipate more of the same in the second of Carson's planned trilogy. Until then, this offers plenty on which to ruminate.--Bradburn, Frances Copyright 2015 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Carson (the Girl of Fire and Thorns series) launches her Gold Seer trilogy with a winning story set in 1849 gold rush America. Fifteen-year-old Leah Westfall lives a happy life with her parents in Georgia during the waning years of that state's gold boom. Leah has a magical ability to locate the precious metal, but her gift becomes a liability when she is forced from her home by a villain determined to control her and make himself rich. Disguised as a boy, Leah-now Lee-decides that her best chance for freedom is to travel to the newly discovered gold fields of California; to get there, she must make a long, hard trek across the country with few resources. Carson's story is simply terrific-tense and exciting, while gently and honestly addressing the brutal hardships of the westward migration. Even minor characters are fully three-dimensional, but it's Leah who rightfully takes center stage as a smart, resourceful, determined, and realistic heroine who embodies the age-old philosophy that it isn't what happens to you, but how you react to it that matters. Ages 13-up. Agent: Holly Root, Waxman Leavell Literary Agency. (Sept.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
