Kearney, Cheyenne, Rawlins. Reno, Sacramento, San Francisco. At each train station, a few lucky orphans from the crowded streets of New York City receive the fulfillment of their dreams: a home and family. This "orphan train" is the vision of Charles Loring Brace, founder of the Children's Aid Society, who cannot bear to see innocent children abandoned in the overpopulated cities of the mid-nineteenth-century. Yet it is not just the orphans whose lives need mending -- follow the train along and watch God's hand restore love and laughter to the right family at the right time!

Follow the orphan train out West as children's hearts are mended and God's hand restores laughter to grieving a marvelous story of His perfect providence.

Baker & Taylor
Establishing the Children's Aid Society, Charles Loring Brace rescues children from the streets of nineteenth-century New York City and takes them by train throughout the country in search of loving homes and families. Original.
