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.

I pretty much only read nonfiction about people (usually historical people) who survived crazy wilderness situations. The California and Yukon gold rushes we...

2.5 Walk The Earth A Stranger
You know that game, The Oregon Trail? You would choose an occupation (I was usually a carpenter, so I could fix broken axles, wheels, etc), assign your skill points for foraging or keeping morale high, choose a city to start from(I always started from Independence or Jefferson City) and a city as yo...

3.0 Not what I expected...
I am not quite sure why this was marketed as a fantasy- because in my opinion it isn't. Well, it does have some fantasy aspects.. but on the large, I would call this a historical novel. And therein lies my biggest issue. There is no world building. If this is a fantasy- then the world building i...

3.5 Thoughts: Walk on Earth a Stranger
Walk on Earth a Stranger -- Rae Carson Book 1 of Walk on Earth a Stranger I absolutely adored Rae Carson's Fire and Thorns series and so, unintentionally, I might have done a little bit of compare and contrast; and I might have over-hyped myself with the announcement and publishing of Walk on Ea...

4.5 Walk on Earth a Stranger (The Gold Seer #1) by Rae Carson
At first, I was scared that this book wouldn’t be as good as The Girl of Fire and Thorns, but I was REALLY surprised when I found that I loved this book just as much as Rae Carson’s other works! It’s really amazing! There hasn’t been a lot of fiction set out near the west, so it was great to read th...
