    Just So Stories Rudyard Kipling Originally told as bedtime stories for Kipling's daughter Josephine, Just So Stories remains a classic of children's literature - simply and beautifully written, with an entirely believable, far from cosy vision of the joy, wonder and dangers of the natural world.

    A story about the California Gold Rush. Wonderful characters. Lots of historical information about the time period.
