Train Dreams


Train Dreams tells the story of Robert Grainer, a day laborer who grows up working on the construction of the railroad across the Pacific Northwest. The year is 1917, and the country is poised for unprecedented change, when Grainer participates in the attempted murder of a fellow worker, a Chinaman. In this excerpt from the first track of the audio novella, actor Will Patton intones the story in his measured, husky voice, baring Grainer’s physical strength and psychological vulnerability.
