for Railroad John and the Red Rock Run by Tony Crunk and Michael Allen Austin
Today is the day Lonesome Bob is set to marry Wildcat Annie. The wedding ceremony begins at two o'clock in Red Rock and Wildcat Annie waits for no one.
"I've driven this train for forty years, and we've never been late once yet!" Railroad John says proudly, as Lonesome Bob and Granny Apple Fritter board the train for Red Rock. But Bad Bill and his outlaw gang are waiting up around the bend and a fierce thunderstorm kicks up. Now the Sagebrush Flyer train and Lonesome Bob are twenty-two minutes behind schedule! Can Granny Apple Fritter's Hard-Shell Chili-Pepper-Corn-Pone Muffins help save the day?
Austin's colorful and exaggerated illustrations capture the fast-paced action and the bigger-than-life characters of Crunk's hilarious tall tale.
