About the Author
The author wrote "Bo John's Train" as a dedication to her father- the real "Bo John". Robert Lee Walton Jr. also known as "Bo John"; was a conductor and engineer for CSX Transportation. He drove trains! She has some of the fondest memories of her father driving through town; waving at his family from the engine of a freight train. Now every time she sees or hears a train; she thinks of him. Currently; the author lives in Al Ain; which is located in the United Arab Emirates. She teaches English to children who speak Arabic. She also lives there with her son; Ryan.

My Take on the Book
Dr. Dana E. Walton wrote this lovely story in memory of her father Robert Lee Walton Jr. He was known as Bo John. It is quite evident that Bo John was loved and respected by the people of the community in which he lived and worked.

It is a heartwarming story. It illustrated the importance one person can make in the lives of his family, friends, and his community.As I read the story , I wished I could have met this man while he lived. He certainly epitomized, through his daughter's written word, a man of kindness, commitment , and joy.
