Summary

At the end of the 19th Century W.H.Davies hustled his way across America, working when he could, begging and stealing when he couldn't. He saw life on the breadline. He was beaten up in New Orleans, thrown into prison in Michigan and was present at lynchings in Tennessee, truly a diarist of the nether side of the American dream. After travelling with some of the most interesting and adventurous characters, an accident forced him to return to a similar poverty filled world back in England.

"The incorrigible Super-tramp who wrote this amazing book. I have read it through from beginning to end, and would have read more of it had there been anymore to read." George Bernard Shaw
