Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Jimmy Cannon loves trains. And he wants to work on the railroad more than anything when he grows up. After all, his father is the foreman in Rowlesburg, and all the men in his family have worked on the rails. But times are changing in the 1940s, and JimmyÕs father sees a different future for his son. Join Jimmy on the ride of a lifetime, through midnight Halloween romps, the championship football game, and a secret society in this coming-of-age story set during the last of the railroad days.

Synopsis:

The powerful first novel by newcomer Slayton captures the serendipity of boyhood by shining a spotlight on the peak adventures of the life of a boy growing up in a small town in 1940s West Virginia.
