Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0689826095, Hardcover)Papa says
it's the sound of leaving
that speaks to my soul...
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.
(retrieved from Amazon Mon, 30 Sep 2013 13:30:15 -0400)
The son of a sharecropper dreams of leaving Mississippi on a train with the legendary engineer Casey Jones.
