by Eddy Joe Cotton
A narrative on the life of an American Hobo, this true story may be a modern day On the Road. At the age of 19, Eddy Joe Cotton left Denver and began riding the rails. Through his honest observations, the reader gets not only his personal experience, but also a compact history of the hobo in America. Cotton's story is about leaving it all behind to find yourself and is sometimes funny, sometimes sad but always told with insight and beauty. A great trip into a culture that most of us will never experience.
