Emma and the Silk Train takes readers back to the early years of the last century when passing high-speed trains brought romance and adventure to small towns in North America. On September 21, 1927, about 100 miles east of Vancouver, British Columbia, a high-speed silk train derailed, spilling some of its precious cargo of Oriental silk into the churning Fraser River. Emma's longing for a piece of silk and her determination to have it put her life in danger. This beautifully illustrated story is a fictional account of a little girl's adventure and dramatic rescue, based on an intriguing event in Canadian history.
