Camels Always Do by Lynn Manuel

These animals are really something! said a man in a business suit. Especially the big one. That Barnum has a real stubborn streak. Camels always do, said Cameron. In this fictionalized story about a piece of British Columbia history, Cameron and his father travel as packers with twenty-one camels on the long trip to the gold fields. On the way, they must deal with all the camel characteristics that make the animals poorly suited to the job. When the camels feet are injured on the rocks, Cameron knows what to do. When they become so stinky that townspeople will not put up with them, Cameron knows what to do. In the end, though, doing what must be done is not so easy. Lynn Manuel is a full-time writer and the author of more than a dozen books, including Lucy Maud and the Cavendish Cat and The Lickety-Split Princess. Working in watercolor and colored pencil, Kasia Charko has created detailed, glowing paintings that bring period, place and characters to life. Kasia illustrated another historical Orca book recently, Arizona Charlie and the Klondike Kid by Julie Lawson.
