Gold Rush

For my project I chose to do the Cariboo Gold Rush, featuring camels and William Barker.




What was the most interesting thing you learned about your topic?

That they rode camels!

What important lessons have you learned that you want to share with other Canadians?

I learned that it takes a lot of work to mine gold.

How would you compare your life today to the lives of those studied in your project?

Back then they had to get gold by hand, now there is machinery that we use to get the gold faster.
