Details

From exhausting waits in sparse canyons to breezy sunny rides, this volume covers the author’s summer riding freight trains between Portland and Northern California.

The author glorifies train hopping and expounds on his grand adventures, but also provides some interesting local articles about the railroads, on topics such as shipping trash to landfills by train, Junction City's lawsuit against the rail company, and a landslide. Full of unique photographs documenting the author’s railroad journeys, this real-life narrative of a self-styled hobo exudes the feel of adventure and allows readers to explore the world of freight train travel vicariously though him.
