From Library Staff

An exiting adventure set in an alternate 19th-Century Canada where the "Boundless" is built as the first cross-country train. When 10-year-old Will witnesses a murder, he hides out with a traveling circus for "skin of your teeth" adventures. Audiobook is terrific for road trips!

Kenneth Oppel gives us an exiting adventure set in the times of the building of the Canadian Pacific Railway. A witnessed murder has Will, son of one of the executives of the railway line, hiding with a Circus and having some 'by the skin of your teeth' escapades involving villains and circus performers. A good piece of fictionalized history.

Our roadtrip through the midwest a few weeks ago started with this audiobook. Great entertainment for the kids (ages 9 & 7) and adults (aged 39). Our trip wrapped up with visiting Golden Spike National Historical Site, the place where the race to build the United States' transcontinental railroad finished. Gotta love the symmetry!

Oppel has done it again! A tremendously entertaining adventure, full of memorable characters and as big as Canada itself.
