Summary
Having been sent from New York City via the Orphan Train in order to help a man work his farm, young John isn't received well by the biological son who, due to his physical limitations, is unable to fulfill his duties alongside his father, but with time, both boys come to an understanding and accept that there is more than enough room for the two of them to live in peace and friendship. Reprint.
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Before the accident Nathaniel's life seemed pretty good. His help around the farm made his father proud. But now, with a busted leg, Nathaniel can't do farmwork anymore, so his father adopts another son through the Orphan Train. Feeling replaced and useless, Nathaniel attends school for the first time. Meanwhile, sturdy and strong John is able to do the work that earns Pa's attention.

But the truth is, John Worth has his own set of troubles. He is treated more like a servant than a son. Kept awake at night by nightmares of his family's death, he remembers having a pa who took pride in him. But now he has no one, until a community battle and a special book reveal a potential friend -- and a chance for understanding.
