Auteur: Garon, Paul & Gene Tomko
Titel: Black Hoboes & Their Songs
Sub titel: What's The Use Of Walking If There's A Freight Train Going Your Way?
Another wonderful slice of history, political, cultural, and social history. Better yet, it comes 'illustrated' with a CD, with 25 original recordings. Plus, of course, the work is full of the lyrics, art, and photographs of people, and their times. The music and poetry of black workers in motion - hoboing, hitchhiking, timbering, mining, railroading, loving, leaving, fighting back and searching for a new job, a new life and even a new world are brilliantly recorded and explained in this arresting collection.
