Synopsis: In 1934, during the midst of the Great Depression, millions of people were unemployed and homeless across the United States. During these hard times, it's no surprise that the country was overrun with dangerous bank robbers like John Dillinger. While the Depression had forced Hildy Corrigan's family to move to California in hopes of finding work and a home, she never imagined it would bring her face to face with a ruthless outlaw and his gang!

The adventure begins when Hildy Corrigan befriends a new girl named Dixie Mae, who confides to Hildy that her father is a notorious bank robber and has kidnapped her from her mother. Dixie Mae is afraid of her father, who plans to rob a nearby train carrying millions of dollars in gold.

Aided by her feisty tomboy cousin, Ruby Konning, and her friend Spud, the three friends risk their lives to help Dixie Mae escape her captor and to stop the train from being robbed.

Chased across a trestle, tapped and captured, bound and placed with explosive cargo in boxcars plummeting down mountain tracks to certain destruction what an adventure!

About the Author: "A shoe with a 3.5 inch cork sole made a writer out of me." says bestselling author Lee Roddy. "I was born sick and handicapped. Poor health prevented me from leading a normal boy's life for ten years. During my confinement, I became an avid reader. Fortunately, surgeries corrected my problems. . . but I remained a reader for life!"

At the young age of twenty two, Lee decided to seriously pursue his writing career. He packed his things and moved to Hollywood, California. It wasn't long before he was hired with a Los Angeles advertising agency writing copy for major corporations. It wasn't quite the type of writing he had in mind. . .but it was a start!

Before long, Lee had moved on in his writing career. As a staff writer for NBC, ABC, and CBS, he wrote radio network dramas. One of the highlights of his career was the sale of his novel The Life and Times of Grizzly Adams to NBC. It later became a prime- time television series for the network, and was viewed by 28 million viewers weekly.

Since 1974, Lee has written countless books. Most significantly, he wrote the Jesus film for Campus Crusade for Christ, which is now in more than three hundred languages and is viewed worldwide. He has had five of his books made into major motion pictures, and has been on the New York Times bestseller list on several occasions. AN AMERICAN ADVENTURE and BETWEEN TWO FLAGS are two popular series for young adults that present exciting stories set in historic America.

These days Lee focuses on his life with his wife, children, grandchildren, his work, and his church. He is a highly sought after public speaker and prolific writer.
