Casey Jones

by Andrea P. Smith

Part of a Series: Jr. Graphic American Legends.

Even as a boy, Casey Jones was fascinated by trains. He grew up to become a train engineer, famous for his record-setting arrival times and heroic deeds. This little known figure of American history died while trying to stop a speeding train, an act that became part of his already impressive legend. The engaging volume uses a graphic novel-style format to draw in readers and delineate information. While the design will entice browsers, the time line, glossary, index, and a Web site address that connects to even more information will make this volume useful for report writers. The illustrations are clear and action-packed.
