It was 1932, the depths of the Great Depression, and thousands of desperate people rode the rails in search of jobs, homes, and hope. For some, the track was a road to nowhere, a dead end in a boxcar or under the wheels or in a sea of emptiness. Their fate seemed certain until Ish Watson grabbed the rungs of a passing freight train bound for a dying relative on the Texas Gulf Coast.
