Listen to the story of the railroad's greatest hero!

Now all of this happened
a hundred years ago
but it's a story that everyone
ought to know
'cause the railroad back then
was the mightiest thing
and the loco engineer
was the Iron Horse King!

With action-packed, intricately detailed pictures and text that whistles off the page, here is the tale of the locomotive engineer John Luther Casey Jones, who died at his post with one hand on the whistle and the other on the air-brake lever -- a hero to the end.

Drummond paints a lively picture of railroading in its heyday as he tells the story of an American legend.
