Inhaltsangabe: He spent close to 20 years riding freight trains, hoboing in almost every part of the country. As one of them, he is aware that the hobo is a doomed species that will soon vanish forever. Now he is sharing his story, in the hope that the reader will come to know the hobo...the society will come to understand what the hobo has contributed to humankind; that there will develop an appreciation of the marvelous historical treasure the American hobo has become; that their legacy will be preserved.
From Library Journal:
More like the gypsy than the homeless drifter, the hobo is truly a character of unique attraction, though representing a socially unacceptable way of life. Closely aligned with America's system of railroads, hobos and hoboing have been around since the Civil War, although they were much popularized during the Great Depression. "Steam Train" Graham began hoboing in 1931 and by 1980 had traveled countless miles across the nation. In more recent years, he has become a celebrity of sorts. In this remarkable book he relates a saga of his life and travels, not a sociological treatise. Graham has a wife and two daughters, and they share a strong sense of family. His story does much to establish a definitive history of the American hobo. Highly recommended for most collections.
