During the Great Depression, more than 250,000 children left their homes and hopped on freight trains crisscrossing the country. They were looking for work and adventure; some wanted to leave their homes, and some had to. Riding the Rails gives us the stories of their travels in their own words and tells us what happened to them in the years since.
