Hobo Camp Fire Tales
This is the second book in the famous hobo series by A No.1. The writing is thrilling, presenting true, hilarious stories of train hopping and tramping. Warning to Those Who Read this Book: the Author, who Has Led for Over a Quarter of a Century the Pitiful and Dangerous Life of a Tramp, gives this Well-Meant Advice: DO NOT Jump on Moving Trains or Street Cars, even if only to ride to the next street crossing, because this might arouse the “Wanderlust,” besides endangering needlessly your life and limbs. Wandering, once it becomes a habit, is almost incurable, so NEVER RUN AWAY, but STAY AT HOME, as a roving lad usually ends in becoming a confirmed tramp.
