This was recommended to me by a fellow teacher. I've always loved Cynthia Rylant's powerful work that makes me homesick for an Appalachian life my western US self has never known, and that same spirit comes to life in this Christmas gem. Based on the train that delivers packages each November, this tells the story of a boy whose holiday magic depends on the gifts thrown from the train. Year after year, he never receives the Christmas present he dreams of. His disappoint results in a strong message that makes this book so memorable.
The book imagines a back story to the train of a generous rich gentleman trying to pay back a town's kindness, and this same mood permeates the story. Perhaps not historically accurate, but certainly appreciated and appealing to the imagination.

As a daughter of Appalachia, I enjoy books that celebrate our history, and this one does. My favorite was the last story, "Christmas Comes to Lord Calvert," which surprises you with a unexpected ending.

It also had a cowboy holster in it but no doctor kit.
Every year that he waited for a silver wrapped package Frankie wanted a doctor kit, and every year he got a different toy. Somehow though, Frankie got something else in those packages that was very important indeed. It was something that ended up changing his whole life.
