The Legendary Casey Jones
The Legendary Casey Jones and Other American Folktales brings together many of Geoffrey Thomas’s short stories for the first time, each brimming with the big heartedness, warmth and homespun humour that he is known for.
Sweeping through southern deltas, western prairies and colonial outposts, Geoffrey Thomas introduces a host of extraordinary characters in his mesmerising tales of American heritage: blacksmiths, farmers, frontiersmen try to get by; a brave railroad engineer becomes a national hero; a Native American girl changes the course of history.
Perfect for Middle Grade (7-10 years) readers and teeming with gospel truth and encouragement, Thomas’s stories are a delight.
