In 1930, during the Depression, a 13-year-old boy was forced from his home and became a hobo. The entire country was in dire straits. There was no work, no money, and very little food. Many people hit the road to find employment of any kind - but few were as young as Monte Holm. These young people joined an army of young men and women - common folk as well as, skilled tradesmen, engineers, lawyers, bankers - that rode the rails, traveling from state to state, seeking work. Hunger and danger were their constant companions. This yongster became a man at a very tender age.
Dennis Clay and Monte Holm have collaborated to produce this intriguing story of one man's struggle to attain a victorious life.
