San Franciscans loved their new city and were proud of its short but vibrant history. Gone were the shacks and the muddy roads, replaced by modern buildings and elegant homes lining the wide cobblestone streets. Schools opened; restaurants thrived.
Norton the First, Emperor of the United Sates and Protector of Mexico, found a warm welcome and devoted subjects when he came quietly on the scene in September of 1859. Towards the end of his reign, Noelle Browning, an eleven-year-old girl sent from New York to live with her maternal aunt, came to San Francisco. Displaced, angry, and frightened by her forced move away from her newly remarried father, she meets the Emperor who takes it upon himself to introduce her to the city he loves. It was an unlikely friendship but one that brought joy to them both.
Most of the adventures in the story have actually occurred, but the author has changed some of the chronology and embellished the interest of the storyline. Adventures With An American Emperor is well-written and entertaining.
