One of the only and the most complete how to on hopping freight trains I have one other but cannot find it on goodreads Periodically updated but when I got my copy five years ago even the latest one is several years out of date this is relevant because merger mania and cost cutting have both made the amount of freight trains and rideable cars trend ever lower over the past several decades Security is also tighter in freight yards since September 11.I can t say that I have personal experience on this one, although there is something inside me that really wants to try this.
The book that made me want to be a hobo when I was 12. I love this book I found it when I was living in a dirty punk house in Portland in a pile of books left behind by someone who probably hadn t lived there for many years There was nothing particularly interesting in the stack, as they were the books left behind, but this one looked cool so I took it It was amazing It s a little bit of train hopping how to, a little bit of history of hobo culture, a little bit of the thrill of riding freight trains, a little bit of safety, a little bit of history of the railroad, a little bit of engineering, a little bit of geography, a little bit of North American history, a lot of adventure and a lot of magic.Don t get me wrong, I enjoy non fiction books, but the kind of books that usually get my heart pumping and suck me into a different world are usually fiction books Reading non fiction is normally for expanding my mind, challenging my opinions and adding to the body of information floating around in my head Hopping Freight Trains in North America gave me all the excitement and sucked in ed ness I would normally only get from reading fiction or memoir, but also had my brain making connections and adding stuff to my knowledge bank of ideas and facts that I normally experience with good non fiction It was thrilling.I have always thought trains were awesome, but this book is single handedly responsible for my absolute love affair with them and for my desire to see the continent by rail preferably freight train, though if I end up being too much of a wuss to try it before I get too old and have to settle for Amtrak ViaRail or I can always live vicariously through Duffy Littlejohn also, the edition I have is called Hopping Freight Trains in North America not just plain America I couldn t find my edition on here or in OCLC or basically anywhere, though, and assume the name was changed along the way, and perhaps old records were lost, as I know there are several editions of this book and the cover stayed exactly the same except for the inclusion exclusion of North.Probably among my favorite books of all time and definitely the random book I want to recommend to everyone.
