The great k & a train robbery 1926
The Great K & A Train Robbery by Paul Leicester FordIf you love turn-of-the-century romance and railroad fiction, this short novel is for you. The story quickly moves from New Mexico to Arizona via the K&A Railroad. Aboard the train is Dick Gordon, protagonist and the superintendent of the line. Also aboard this train is the Cullen family. Mr. Cullen is the executive officer of another small railroad. Cullen’s son and two of his Oxford school chums are traveling in this group along with Cullen’s daughter, Madge, who becomes the love interest of Dick Gordon.
The Cullen party is en route to a board meeting of the Great Southern RR which is attempting a takeover. Three registered letters are en route to that meeting in a K&A mail car. The train robbery involves the theft of these letters.
The robbery occurs in a remote desert area of Arizona. Nothing but the three letters is taken. In a convoluted twist of action, Dick Gordon ends up in jail, is released, and ultimately rescued by the cavalry after an unexpected delay.
As with every good “happily ever after” romance, Dick wins the hand of Madge, whom he believed to be out of his league socially and financially. Dick also receives the benefit of a promotion arranged by Madge’s father as reward for his help in the robbery affair.
Unlike the happy ending in Paul Leicester Ford’s novel, the author’s life did not end well. After many years as a successful author and historian, he was shot at the age of 37 by a disinherited brother.
