Description
A nameless young armful of bones dying in his arms in Africa, and a stubborn Washington bureaucracy forced Peter Wayman to hijack a trainload of surplus grain and ride it to a port for shipping. America had countless silos of grain rotting after bountiful harvests, and no one responded to protests from Peter and his college and farm friends. Desperate to end this insanity, Peter and his followers create an elaborate scheme to awaken this country to the urgent problem"and the simple solution. Bombs and bombers are placed along the train route, and authorities are warned to clear the tracks for the Grain Train to continue west"or else. A worthy cause, but illegal means confuse the issue. Does the law have the right to do whatever it deems necessary, even lie and murder, to protect its citizens from terrorist threats? The reader must decide"when does the end justify the means?
