About the Author
The Boxcar Children Series was created by Gertrude Chandler Warner, a teacher, when she realized that there were few, if any, books for children that were both easy and fun to read. She drew on her own experiences in writing the mysteries. As a child, she had spent hours watching trains near her home, and often dreamed about what it would be like to live in a caboose or freight car. In each story, she chose a special setting and introduced unpredictable, unusual or eccentric characters, to help highlight the Aldens’ independence and resourcefulness. Miss Warner lived in Putnam, Massachusetts until her death in 1979.

From the Back Cover
One warm night four children stood in front of a bakery. No one knew them. No one knew where they had come from.
Henry, Jessie, Violet, and Benny used to live alone in a boxcar. Now they have a home with their grandfather and are spending the summer out west on their Aunt Jane’s ranch.
Aunt Jane, their grandfather’s sister, is a very unhappy woman who hasn’t spoken to her brother in years. The Boxcar Children try to help her, but it isn’t until the end of the summer that they learn Aunt Jane’s secret — and make a surprising discovery about Mystery Ranch.
