A night train, a freight train, a highspeed train. Racing across the country, from coast to coast. All aboard!

Climb aboard a red-striped Commuter Train in the East. Switch to a blue Passenger Train rolling through midwestern farmland. Then hop on a Freight Train, soar over mountains on an Overnight Train, and finish on a High-Speed Train as it races to the West Coast.

Trains are moving. Fast and loud, colourful and powerful. Experience their sights, sounds, smells - and the engineers and conductors who make them go - as they roll across the country.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for Train*"A poetic, beautifully conceived book - it has the right amount of pomp-and-circumstance to make train travel sound just a little bit glamorous." -Booklist, starred review*"Cooper's signature sun-bleached watercolors beautifully convey human achievements and nature's grandeur . . . this is more than a tribute to a mode of transport: it's also a valentine to the sweep of American geography." -Publishers Weekly, starred review*"Thanks to clever narrative pacing and handsome design . . . [and] loose watercolor-and-pencil artwork [that] hums with activity and energy . . . Kids will be all aboard for this one." -Kirkus, starred review*"Most suitable for a one-on-one perusal with sophisticated young train aficionados but it is a wonderful foray into the 'train books' category and a distinguished addition to most collections." -School Library Journal, starred review*"Kids who gaze hopefully into passing engines while pulling a make-believe train horn will clamor to hear this book. Again and again. And again." -Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, starred review
