"Jack Black calls his book You Can't Win. Well, who can? Winner takes nothing. Would he have been better off having spent his life at some full-time job? I don’t think so. He has recorded a chapter of specifically American life that is gone forever. Where are the hobo jungles, the hop joints, the old rod-riding yeggs, where is Salt Chunk Mary? Where is the Johnson Family? As another thief, Francois Villon, said, "Where are the snows of yesteryears?"

--Willam Burroughs

"I crouched quietly in the patch of tall weeds. Around me fell the shadow of the viaduct that carried a highway over the railroad yards. From the edge of the yards, I squinted as I watched the railroad cars being switched from track to track. Cars and trucks were rolling over the viaduct, but what occupied my attention was the dark, cool corridor underneath it, where I hoped to intercept my train."

NAPOLEON, Ohio -- Maurice Graham, who began riding the rails at age 14 in 1931 and was known as the ``King of the Hobos,'' has died. He was 89.

Graham recently suffered a stroke and died Saturday at a rehabilitation center in Napoleon.

Nicknamed ``Steam Train Maury,'' he was a founding member of the Hobo Foundation and helped establish the Hobo Museum in Britt, Iowa.

National Hobo Foundation President Linda Hughes said Graham was ``a true hobo hero.''

``He was a classy and respected man,'' she said. ``No one can live up to Steam Train. He's irreplaceable.''

King of the Hobos, RIP
