The Pullman Porter

We rated this book:


There was a person on a train. A specific Pullman Porter, who does really nice things for the people on the train. The really rich people had a lot nicer things on the train, but the poor people had to bring their own food and sleep in little bunk beds that were stacked up against their seats. But sometimes, against the rules, the Pullman Porter would throw food to hungry children that they whizzed by on the train. Often, the Pullman Porter would have to lie about his age to get the job. So they slept on very thin pillows and often they had to leave their families for week. The Pullman cars were on trains, and the Porters were the people on trains that helped other people.

This book is okay. I didn’t know about those people or trains before. I thought it was nice that he disobeyed the rules to help other people, because the rules weren’t right. They seemed like nice people. The pictures were kind of strange because everything was kind of blurry except for their faces.
