Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 080693185X, Paperback)

A vibrant tribute and how-to introduction to a craft that was once immensely common yet has become rare today. Hoboes used to use their pocketknives to whittle distinctively whimsical pieces, many containing a characteristic ball-in-the-cage or chain design. Tramps, on the other hand, made more functional items using chip-carving techniques on cigar-box wood. Learn how to reproduce hobo and tramp art, and make candlesticks, a neckerchief slide, a picture frame, and more. A glorious, full-color gallery of pieces, a variety of hobo poems, historical information, and even a selection of hobo code signs celebrate the spirit of this delightful folk-art heritage.
