How to Be a Hobo
Published by Free Press Publications

This self-help, memoir, survival guide is designed to help hobos not only make it through the day, but to come to love and enjoy every blessed moment of this feral life. Written by by Brooke Willett, who hit the road with her dog when her life fell apart. She put on a knapsack, and they started walking. She was able to navigate her way through challenges and obstacles, getting odd jobs along the way, and hopping freight trains as a main mode of transport, when one day she awoke in the forest, looked around the jungle of homemade shelters, and realized she had become… a hobo… and would ultimately come to know exactly what it means to survive.
