The Ways of the Hobo
Composed at the turn of the century by A No. 1, the famous tramp, The Ways of the Hobo presents a United States where losing oneself in the landscape of America was truly possible. This is a world where identities are re-imagined in seconds and travel is as thrilling as it is dangerous. Follow A No. 1 as he travels amid the foothills of the Alleghenies, Lake Erie, Kansas City, San Diego, Oceanside and all points in between. The Ways of the Hobo is part of a large series authored and self-published by A No. 1. The series is a primer on subculture, counterculture, and anti-authoritarianism -- a must for any train fanatic or anyone intrigued by the lives of hoboes and tramps.
