Super Super-Tramp

by Bassman1 on Nov 13, 2008

This book provides a fascinating insight into early 20th century life at the lowest tier of society in the USA as seen through the eyes of an intelligent articulate welshman who dropped out of mainstream British education and society as a young man then lived through his adventures across both sides of the Atlantic to eventually become a successful writer and poet. His recollection of this time on the road is written in an easily digestible style painting pictures of America as a land full of plenty ready to share with those willing to ask for help which contrasts completely with a UK that considers abject poverty in the lowest level of a class driven system in full swing as the norm. The incidents and stories in this book are recalled in an informative,thought provoking and often amusing way and is a perfect pick up and put down volume.
