Description

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.

Professional reviews

"Narrator Erin Mallon doesn't waste any time revealing the peculiar blend of vulnerability and daring that make Lee Westfall, the narrator of this historical novel, so unique. Her voice cracks with fear but is grounded in strength as, following tragic events, she begins a difficult journey to California to mine for gold. For her own safety, she disguises herself as a boy, but this isn't the only secret she's keeping. She possesses an uncanny ability to sense whenever gold is near. With the exception of Lee's subtle Southern drawl, Mallon deftly distinguishes between Lee's diverse group of traveling companions with pitch and pacing rather than dialect, moving the dialogue along smoothly.
