Jesse Stuart Junior Book
“What lies in the world outside of Clearwater Valley?” Sunny Logan always wondered. Twice each day, for the two years he had been going to school, he hurried to the railroad tracks. There he could watch Huey the engineer drive his engine No. 5 along the Eastern Kentucky Railroad. Sunny would not miss seeing Huey for anything in the whole world.
The day Huey stops his train is a joyful one for Sunny. “Well, young man,” says the great engineer, “don’t you think it’s time you climbed up here in the engine and rode with me to the end of the line?”
Of course, none of Sunny’s classmates believe him. “That Sunny Logan has been having strange dreams!”
Even in Sunny’s wildest dreams he could not imagine the excitement that was to follow.
