From Publishers Weekly:

This delightfully disorganized romp through the world of railroads and railroad lore will appeal to dedicated rail fans and casual readers alike. Wolf ( Children of the Sun ) relates his experiences as a railroad employee and describes his eventually successful efforts to purchase an old caboose and have it delivered to his home in British Columbia. Among these stories and remembrances are tales of spectacular close calls, anecdotes about animal/train relationships and a sprinkling of train-oriented songs and poems. Also included are a guide to scenic rail trips and suggestions on how to go about buying a caboose of one's own (the author now owns four). Cabooses, falling into disuse, are singled out for special attention and affection; the author's farewell tribute to them is moving. A glossary of railroad slang rounds out a relaxing and enjoyable reading experience. Photos not seen by PW.
