Meet a town and a train and a time and a boy - Jimmy Cannon. And meet his father - as strong as a Mallet locomotive - whom Jimmy simply cannot figure out! But who, in a dramatic and unexpected twist, turns out to be so much more than Jimmy ever knew.
In a book that goes to the core of boyhood - its Halloween mischief, its hunting day mystery, its championship football-game surprises, and its nighttime adventures - Fran Cannon Slayton brings her listeners to the breathtaking crossroads of an unforgettable West Virginia railroad town, a family that matters, and adulthood itself.
