Andy Maust likes to write poems, and he's not good at running or wrestling or any of the other activities that Amish boys enjoy. The other boys tease him mercilessly, and then Andy's dog disappears in a mysterious way. Drifters are roaming the country on trains, looking for work and a hot meal, and Andy begins to imagine running away from his troubles. He decides to catch a train to somewhere--anywhere--where he can be himself. Will Andy find contentment and peace in his new life, or will God call the prodigal home?
