Summary:"This autobiography is truly the wanderings of an intinerant roving prinver. Though I was never what is often termed a "tramp printer," it has been my lot to associate with many of that class when "riding the rods" on a freight train and "panhandling" print shops was not uncommon ... The experiences I relate in the following pages are true happenings, not thrilling nor sensational, but I believe the reader will enjoy them, and they are written particularly for my children, grandchildren and great grandchildren, that they may know that though badly handicapped by the lack of even a high school education, I have by sheer determination and energy overcome many of the obstacles that beset my eventful career."--The Preface.
