As late as1939, orphans from eastern cities were taken west by train to be offered up for adoption to farmer and others, and often they were abused.  Christina Baker Kline's new novel, The Orphan Train is about the friendship that develops between two such orphans, one in her late teens, the other in her nineties.  Larry Bowlden gives us his take on it.
