About the Book

A blind calliope player longs to visit the Rio Grande, two siblings take a magical train trip, a boy in Santa Fe sprouts angel wings, and a man recounts his childhood in wartime Holland. These wonderful tales and many more highlight David Rachlin’s vivid imagination and keen sense of place, reflecting the regions of the United States and Europe where he has lived. His stories move from realistic fiction to magical realism to science fiction and back again. From the 20th Century up to an Earth settlement on Mars, the stories are full of wonderful characters from all walks of life.
