Annotation 1944. A young boy travels alone on the train from Chicago to northern Minnesota to stay with his Norwegian grandmother, who is the cook for a crew of road builders. The boy's father is a soldier, and his mother has brought home a man she says is an uncle--but the boy knows better. Grandmother shows him how to help her in the cook trailer, and the large, loud men take him on their huge road-building machines. For grades 5-8 and older readers.
