In the first book in a new trilogy from acclaimed New York Times bestselling author Rae Carson, a young woman with a magical ability must flee her home, taking her on a sweeping and dangerous journey across Gold Rush–era America.

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 trilogy, dazzles with this new fantasy that subverts both our own history and familiar fantasy tropes. Walk on Earth a Stranger, the first book in this new trilogy, introduces—as only Rae Carson can—a strong heroine, a perilous road, a fantastical twist, and a slow-burning romance.

Quotes & Awards

  • “An empowering and powerful read perfect for one who enjoys history and adventure…Carson takes us on a wild wagon journey peppered with drama and mystery.”

    RT Book Reviews (4 stars)

  • “Carson is known for her world building and strong female characters, and she handles everything with carefully constructed, well-researched aplomb. It’s a book that illuminates an important segment of American history as effectively as some textbooks, sustaining YA interest through adventure, fantasy, and romance.”

    Booklist (starred review)

  • “Carson’s story is simply terrific—tense and exciting, while gently and honestly addressing the brutal hardships of the westward migration. Even minor characters are fully three-dimensional, but it’s Leah who rightfully takes center stage as a smart, resourceful, determined, and realistic heroine who embodies the age-old philosophy that it isn’t what happens to you, but how you react to it that matters.”
