Another edition of the Hobo series as told by A No.1, this time
featuring the famed Jack London. Many are familiar with his social
activism and literary classics, Call of the Wild and White Fang,
but here we have an intimate travelogue of the man behind the
legend. Even before his rise to greatness, A No. 1 can sense
something special in the young Jack London and reluctantly agrees
to his persistent requests to partner up for a grand hobo trip
across the states from New York to Oakland. This is a rare inside
glimpse of a true man amongst men, building his character through
the trials and tribulations of the hobo life and hopping trains
from coast to coast. And of course, this includes all the danger,
thrills, violence, earnestness, wit and wisdom we've come to expect
from tramp extraordinaire, A No. 1. Coast to Coast with Jack London
is a slice of true Americana history too real to ever be in a
history book and written as only an insider could. The hobo series
is on off-kilter primer of subculture, counterculture, and
anti-authoritarianism -- a must for any train fanatic or anyone
intrigued by the lives of hoboes and tramps and life in general.
