Pedro's Pan

A Gold Rush Story

Experience all the excitement of a wilderness gold rush through an unexpected narrator: a prospector’s trusted gold pan. In this picture book that’s based on the true story of Felice Pedroni, a miner sifts through the creeks of Fairbanks, Alaska, at the turn of the nineteenth century. Pedro and Pan—one in red plaid and suspenders, the other round and shiny with a mobile smile and eyes—explore together, braving wild animals, harsh weather, and hard work before striking it big.
