Short Summary

In the summer of 1972, an ominous, foreboding, super cell cracks the sky over Lubbock, Texas with 5 mile streaks of lightning and thunder. It will help make circus history and a storm whipped, hellacious move out night, for men and animals, loading the mile-long, Remington Bros Circus train.


There is much circus joy and sorrow that will live and die rolling 500 miles of life changing track, on a three-ring train ride to Monroe, Louisiana. For performers, a theatrical impresario, a waylaid taxi driver and a daring young man on the flying trapeze, the joy will cushion the fate that awaits
