Set in 19th-century Mississippi, I Dream of Trains is the story of an African American boy who works in the cotton fields, constantly daydreaming of his hero, Casey Jones, whose trains whistle as they whiz past the fields. When Casey is killed in a wreck, the boy's father gives him the courage and confidence to continue striving towards a better, more adventuresome life for himself, despite the loss of his hero.
