"Once upon a time there was a train that dreamed of being a boat."
It was the train that took immigrants seeking a better life in the
New World across the endless flat prairies to San Francisco. And it
was the train that took Conor, a small homesick boy from Ireland,
on the voyage he would remember for the rest of his life. While on
that train, Conor dreams of being back in Connemara, Ireland, with
his grandfather when suddenly, to his amazement, the waving prairie
grass becomes the sea and the train on which he is traveling, like
a boat, sails across it right back to his home. How Conor comes to
realize that the home he's left behind will always be with him
provides a reassuring and deeply satisfying resolution to this
poignant tale. The dreamlike paintings by Caldecott Honor artist
Eric Rohmann combine with the lyrical text of Irish playwright
Antoine O Flatharta to make this one of the most memorable books of
"From the Hardcover edition.
