|Plot Summary of Lightning Odyssey|
|" During a struggle, a lightning bolt transports Charles DeWitt, a white settler boy, and Little Jake, a Native American boy, from 1838 to 2000. They must overcome their differences and cultural mistrust.
Charles is recognized from an old photo as a bike repairman's forefather who plans to use his experimental time transformer on a bicycle-built-for-two to return them. He must return them; but what will happen when the bike is damaged?"
