The poignant words of two-time Coretta Scott King Award-winning author Angela Johnson and striking images from fine artist Loren Long join forces in this heartbreaking yet uplifting picture book about a boy, his love for trains, and his adulation of one legendary engineer.

It's the story of a hero lost and a hero discovered, of a dream crushed then reawakened, but mostly it is a story of the force that sustains the human spirit -- hope.

Praise

Publishers Weekly
"MacArthur Award winner Johnson pens a reverie as piercing and poignant as the long cry of a train whistle against debut artist Long's breathtaking backdrops." 10/20/2003

Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"This multilayered text distills complex history into an accessible narrative complemented by powerful images." - Janice M. Del Negro November 2003
