Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
In this riotous tall tale, Lonesome Bob is heading to Red Rock to marry Wildcat Annie. The ceremony begins at two o'clock and Wildcat Annie waits for no one.<br> "I've driven this train for forty years, and we've never been late once yet!" Railroad John says proudly as everyone boards the Sagebrush Flyer. But when Bad Bill and his outlaw gang show up around the bend and a fierce thunderstorm kicks up, the Sagebrush Flyer train and Lonesome Bob are twenty-two minutes behind schedule! Can Granny Apple Fritter's Hard-Shell Chili-Pepper-Corn-Pone Muffins help save the day?<br> Austin's colorful and exaggerated illustrations capture the cast of memorable characters and delightfully clever twists of plot and prose in Crunk's hilarious tall tale.
Lonesome Bob and Granny Apple Fritter have to get to Red Rock by two o'clock or Lonesome will miss his wedding, but Railroad John has never been late so nothing will keep him from pulling the train in by 1:59.
