Kit is ready for adventure. Actually, she is ready for anything -- as long as it dosen't involve chores, which are all she has been doing lately. When a young hobo named Will stops to work in the Kittredges' garden, he tells Kit about life on the road. Kit imagines Will has the life of freedom and adventure she longs for -- on the move, seeing the world, sleeping under the stars. Kit is determined to learn more about hobo life. Tired of doing chores and longing for adventure during the Great Depression, Kit decides to hop a freight train. But when she does, she gets more than she bargained for!
