The Legendary Casey Jones brings together many of Geoffrey Thomas’s short stories for the first time, each brimming with the big heartedness, warmth and homespun humor that he is known for. Sweeping through southern deltas, western prairies and colonial outposts, Geoffrey Thomas introduces a host of extraordinary characters in his mesmerizing 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 school (9-12) readers and teeming with gospel truth and encouragement, Thomas’s stories are a delight.

Lots of adventure and surprises

Reuben (aged 8) says: I enjoyed this book because the stories had lots of adventure. There were also lots of surprises in the way the folk tales compared to Jesus. My favourite story was "The Legendary Casey Jones", because Casey Jones is a bit like Jesus in the way he gave his life to save others. I'd like to read more stories in this series.
