On the Rails, A Boxcar Bertie Adventure
by Larry and Rosemary Mild


Rosemary and Larry bring you an exciting fictional story of a young, frisky woman wrestling to survive life's obstacles.

What's a woman to do? Bertie Patchet has just graduated from college to become a grammar school teacher. But the year is 1936 and the country is deep in the throes of the Great Depression. Employment is nearly impossible for everyone, let alone for a single inexperienced female, and going home is an ugly option to be avoided. She must get away, but travel without income presents her with a major problem. Bertie dresses like a man and turns to hopping railway boxcars to make her escape to better opportunities. A female hobo? Unheard of! It's a man's world, so how can she maneuver in this male atmosphere fraught with risk, danger, and loss?
