There’s nothing May wants more that to visit her Grandma Mary. Only problem is, Grandma Mary lives all the way in Idaho, and May’s parents don’t have money from a train ticket, even for one person. However, they do have just enough money to mail a package. Much to the surprise of the conductor, the mail carrier, and May herself, May’s coat is stamped and she is sent off to Idaho, classified as a package. This fascinating tale is based on a true story, and is a testimony to the resourcefulness and creativity of the people living in the early twentieth century.
