The night they stormed eureka.

The book called the night they stormed eureka  is book about a girl  called Sam. She has a bad family and her mother beats her and her dad left her mother. Sam ran away from her home and was thinking about a safer past she stumbled upon a grave stone the said Lucy. All of a sudden she heard the word Lucy over and over again she closed her    eye and open.  She was not in the present she was in the 1854 she found a couple called the puddlehams. She lived with them up until the eureka stockade but she grew close to the puddleham. She tried her best to get them away from the eureka stockade but in the end Mrs puddleham died and Sam went back to the future. The class of 6b enjoyed the book and he is the info we got from the book.





The biggest shock was the hygiene  the water usages and food usages was awful they wash ever on there clothes and will fix all their clothes. and they were in those clothes  until it falls apart. They has no tooth paste no deodorant they Stunk. If you wanted to shower once a month if your lucky and that’s the same water people drink out of. Compared to now are hygiene is much much better.

The ending of the book was good it left a strong message and the puddleham would put Sam before them. I loved it when Sam went back to the future because she would raise her kid just like Ms puddleham did with sam. The message in the book was good because it was a loving family Sam was not the puddleham daughter but she cared for her as she was her own kid.


If they were to let Sam talk to Peter la Lord there may have never been a stockade there may have been no law in Australia.

If they continue the series there would be one about before Sam came and what the puddle hums faced Day to day.

If it was after Sam was gone it should be about Mr puddleham dealing with his wifes death.
