Kate miró el destartalado puente de madera. Había tablones sueltos en su estrecha pasarela. No había ninguna barandilla para sostener. Tenía miedo de cruzar este puente incluso a la luz del día. Pero ella tenía que cruzarlo ahora. Tenía que llegar a la estación de tren a tiempo para detener el expreso de medianoche. Cuando una fuerte tormenta destruyó el puente sobre Honey Creek, cerca de la casa de Kate Shelley en Moingona, Iowa, Kate, de quince años, se lanzó a la tormenta, salvando la vida de dos hombres e impidiendo que se perdieran cientos de vidas más. Esta es la verdadera historia del ingenio y el coraje de una joven ante un gran peligro.

Kate stared at the rickety wooden bridge. There were boards loose on its narrow walkway. There was no railing to hold on to. She was afraid to cross this bridge even in daylight. But she had to cross it now. She had to get to the train station in time to stop the midnight express. When a heavy storm destroyed the bridge over Honey Creek, near Kate Shelley’s home in Moingona, Iowa, fifteen-year-old Kate bravely rushed out into the storm, saving the lives of two men and preventing hundreds of other lives from being lost. This is the true story of a young girl’s resourcefulness and courage in the face of great danger.
