In the fourth Railroad Semantics collection, Aaron takes you along on an epic train journey through desolate stretches of Wyoming, Colorado, and Utah. His personal accounts of train hopping are paired with newspaper clippings, photos, rail yard graffiti, and ephemera to fill in the story. In this volume, Aaron survives encounters with police, railroad workers, and hipsters posing as hobos. He drinks under overpasses, is injured alone in the desert, and even takes a legitimate, ticketed Amtrak ride.
Aaron Dactyl is an adventurer, railroad hobo, and train enthusiast. He regularly travels by hopping trains and lives in Eugene, OR.
