Description du Livre

Self-published in 1918, this is an extremely rare glimpse at the hobo life, culled from the personal experiences of A-No. 1, "the famous tramp." Part of a larger series of hobo stories, the work is definitely of its time, a window to an underground culture that has largely vanished -- although some of the adventures may feel familiar to contemporary train hoppers and squatters.

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.
