Cariboo Runaway introduces children to the BC goldrush days and provides teachers and parents with an excellent language-based Social Studies resource for grade 4-5 students.
Disguised as a boy, 13 year-old Elva Parkhurst leaves Victoria in 1864 to find her father somewhere in the Cariboo, where he has been prospecting for six years. But now the family needs him. Determined to bring him home, Elva is outraged when her brother, Tim, follows her on board the S.S. Beaver. Together the two journey 500 miles up the Cariboo Wagon Road - moving from adventure to adventure. When they finally arrive in Barkerville, they discover their father is in jail! Only his children can free him.
