Scribner's 'A' present. ; From dust jacket flap: This is an adventure story and it will hold children's interest from first to last. It is exciting but not melodramatic. Based on fact, it tells of the difficulties between the Indians and the trains that came roaring across the plains, scaring away the buffalo. One small Indian does not feel this way about the engine that he admires and calls "Swift Thunder of the Prairie" and the story tells how he kept the train from being wrecked. The pictures are charming and true to the period.
