Lee is growing up in post-Civil War Georgia, where memories of the war still circulated. He was fascinated with trains and their whistles led him to imagine life and times elsewhere, far from the countryside, where he and his family lived. The chapter headings suggest the adventures that await Lee (named for the Confederate General Robert E. Lee): Yankee Prisoners, Double Trouble, Crazy Sara, Bully, The Picnic, The Fight, Bully Goes to Town, House Afire!, The Head-On Collision, Rain, Rain, Rain, Fusee to the Rescue, and Lee Gets a Letter.
