First published in 1914, this detailed account of female hobos is a rare and beautiful example of early American storytelling. The Adventures of a Female Tramp is social history, presenting vagabond underground culture with humor, excitement and a flare for the dramatic. Each of the cross-country adventures are told by "the famous hobo" A. No. 1 who authored several books about tramping, including From Coast to Coast with Jack London, which inspired the 1973 movie Emperor of the North.
