Product Description

Midwest Book Review October, 2018 "At first glance, The Railway Children Chronicles sounds like this will be another addition to (or perhaps a takeoff on) Edith Nesbit's classic children's book, The Railway Children, serialized in 1905 and the subject of movies and reprints over the decades. But this children's story of orphan children in a booming Western town is quite different, surveying the lives of different children orphaned in the mining town of Silver Plume, Colorado, which has neither a church or orphanage to help them.

Raymond Cook fills this story with images from the old West, building a fictional saga that is spiced by research on the atmosphere, politics, and social issues of the times. He then tailors the events and children's' perceptions of their world for a young audience of elementary-level readers (likely grades 4-6) who will find the wealth of vintage photos of children and settings of the era compliment the story of a struggling small family. The result is a realistic, refreshingly absorbing tale recommended for young readers that brings to life the plight of early frontier orphans and the processes whereby they are rescued."

Author's Note: This story will have a happy ending for the orphans.
