Inhaltsangabe: In Kingsville, Texas, in 1925, a boy runs through the outer yards leading to the roundhouse of his town's railroad center. He means only to get home fast so his mother won't be angry with him. By accident he witnesses a brutal murder and quickly runs to tell his father, setting off a series of events that change his whole family's life. The 1920's were not only the merry postwar years that signaled freedom for women when they finally attained the vote, but the insurgence of the Ku Klux Klan, big oil, and the importance of railroads in moving produce and merchandize around the country and to and from all the coasts. In 1932, in the depths of the Great Depression, the boy works in the same rail yards, and one day takes refuge from a tornado by climbing, with a railroad detective, into the firebox of the locomotive he has been working on. There he tells the detective what he had seen years before in the rail yards. The two work together to bring the perpetrators to justice.
