Rails to Light came about as a result of my reading the book Riding the Rails. I was appalled by the teenagers’ experiences, and I wondered what such experiences would do to an individual. Reading about the teenagers’ experiences was interesting, and writing about them was exciting and invigorating. I came to know just how dangerous such a way of life was and, even though I saw the romance and the attraction, it was a time in teenagers’ lives which was subtracted from their childhoods. After they rode the rails, they could never return.
