Kate Shelley and the Midnight Express

The true story of how fifteen-year-old Kate risked her life in a storm to prevent a train disaster. Also includes photographs and text depicting the Mississippi River flood of 1993.

"A vivid recounting of a true story of a young girl in 1881 Iowa, told in the format and style of an easy reader. Through her courageous actions, Kate Shelley was able to save the lives of two men when a railroad bridge was washed out, plus the lives of 200 others speeding toward the broken bridge on an express train. The language is simple, yet its terseness conveys the danger and excitement of the incident. " -- School Library Journal
