Daniel Cook, who enjoyed a thirty-six-year career in the radio broadcast business before retirement, has completed his first book “Riding Trains”: a dark and gripping tale of adventure in a world where every Friday turns into a blue Monday. Cook has always loved telling stories and was inspired to pursue his dream of publishing by a “CBS Sunday Morning” segment that said people in their seventies could be very successful writers because they have truly experienced life.

The book follows Jordan, a runaway street kid who is hopping trains, watching his back, staying out of the clutches of the railroad bulls, avoiding freezing to death in the bitter cold, and learning who to trust. On his journey, Jordan discovers a ruthless, deceitful enemy and must fight for his very survival.

Published by Page Publishing, Cook’s fascinating tale takes readers into a little-known subculture of rail riding through the story of Jordan and four other misunderstood youths. Jordan, brooding and miserable, runs away from home for the first time at age fifteen. Out on his own, he must learn to navigate the subculture of rail riding while figuring out who he can trust.

He befriends Shadow Little Hawk, Melissa Wilkens, Jesse Clark, and River Walker, who all come from different backgrounds and end up on the same path together, trying to find their next safe place to sleep. But on the rails there are also hostiles like the purple tattooed Bolt, who would kill them with the blink of an eye.

Readers who wish to experience this electrifying work can purchase “Riding Trains” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes Store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
