The first book in a new trilogy from acclaimed New York Times–bestselling author Rae Carson. A young woman with the magical ability to sense the presence of gold must flee her home, taking her on a sweeping and dangerous journey across Gold Rush–era America. Walk on Earth a Stranger begins an epic saga from one of the finest writers of young adult literature.

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 the first book in the Gold Seer trilogy, introducing a strong heroine, a perilous road, a fantastical twist, and a slow-burning romance, as only she can.

Rae Carson books are like my YA spirit animals. She created my all time favorite YA Book Boyfriend in Lord Hector for the Fire & Thorns Trilogy, he is EPIC. He is a MAN (in all caps). And yes Elisa was a character that I've identified with the MOST out of ever character ever, the stories created by Carson are elaborate and beautiful and multifaceted- there is a lot of work done and it shows. Because I've had such incandescently marvelous and unforgettable reading experiences with Rae Carson's writing I am so very excited to read this new trilogy. Understanding that maybe I won't find a new Hector and Elisa, understanding that this new trilogy is a completely new animal, I know she can hook me. Rae is such a special writer. I hope to one day shake her hand and say thank you.
