Fiction meets reality in “Light on Golden Mountain”.

Denver, Colorado – 2nd March, 2018 – High adventure, high sierra, a horse named Lewis John, a dog named Ziang and two fifth-graders determined to do things their way. What more could you ask for? Fireworks, bursting dams, exploding mountain ridges, floods, trains, characters you love and hope to meet someday. Well, you get that, too.

Grapple with growing up in post-Civil War America through the eyes and exploits of Mandy McGandy and Jebediah Wu, two kids brought together by construction of the transcontinental railroad.

No strangers to bullies, fitting in, racial discrimination, tackling fractions and where to put the decimal point, Jeb and Mandy dealt with these rites of passage in 1868 just as middle graders deal with them today.

Imagination combines historical research to bring this transformational epoch in America’s history to life for children, parents and teachers. Virtual reality goggles NOT required.
