Rails East: Travelin’ Near and Far

railroad:council bluffs

Council Bluffs, Iowa: “We chugged across the wide Missouri on a steamboat. I helped a local rancher who was taking some colts to Kentucky for race training. The rocking deck, smoke and loud horn frayed their nerves, and I suggested apples to help distract them as we crossed.”

“For the kingdom of heaven is as a man travelling into a far country, who called his own servants, and delivered unto them his goods.

And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one; to every man according to his several ability; and straightway took his journey.”
Matthew 25:14, 15 KJV
