Product Description

Review

"...teachers will find this well-researched resource to be a useful addition in their BC history lessons. As for young people, Moses, Me and Murder is an enjoyable and quick read that will transport the reader back to the early days of British Columbia."

Walsh manages through her careful research to weave real events into a suspenseful novel.

I recommend this book to ten to thirteen year olds who like mysteries and who are interested in BC history. (Review by Nora, age 12, grade 7) --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

I read this book in the class for Reading time.
All my classmates had read it.
My favourite character is Theodore MacIntosh. He is the one who helped to catch James Barry, who murdered Wellington Moses' friend. After we read this story, we had a project to make a board game of Cariboo Gold Rush. It was really fun. I want to own a copy of this book, but there's none in Amazon.

This Barkerville mystery is a page turner for young readers. Having spent a fair bit of time in archives doing research on this era and in Barkerville itself, I found myself completely caught up in Ann Walsh's creative, fictional account of a real happening. I almost wish young Ted had actually lived in the gold rush town. Walsh gives him a keen and observant eye for the period.

Moses is one of Barkerville's best-known historical figures, and the murder of Charles Blessing figured large in imaginations. Walsh paints the murderer, James Barry, as a sinister character who would chill anyone's bones.

This is the kind of book that makes history come alive for young readers and makes them want to learn more. A quick, engrossing read.

A terrific page turner of a boy who learns some difiicult lessons about growing up May 30 2013
By Bill Baker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Picture western Canada during one of the gold rushes of the 1860s, a small mining town, a small boy, a black barber, and a killer, new in town. Feel for the barber, who recognizes a gold stick pin this killer now owns, and for the boy, whom the killer bullies, and you have the making of a terrific page turner - a saga of a boy who learns some difficult lessons in growing up.
