A Hobo Odyssey - Review

Steve Wright and Eddie Biggers were part of the Great Depression, with their parents, family and friends all struggling to make ends meet.  Steve's parents moved to follow work opportunities, leaving the young man wondering about the place he was born. 

One day Steve notices hobos jumping from the freight train that stops over in his town, and an idea was born - why not ride the rails back to his hometown?  With his best friend, Eddie, on board for the adventure of a lifetime, they begin their journey.  But would this quest turn into more than they can handle when a schizophrenic serial killer is hot on their path?  Find out in, A Hobo Odyssey.

This book is written by Larry O. Nichols and is filled with action, adventure, friendship and suspense.  I love the historical references, getting lost in a time when riding the rails was a common occurrence.  Nichols book is the perfect summertime indulgence - I LOVED it!

Larry has always had a desire to write. His first efforts were in the field of genealogy where he researched and wrote six books on various family histories, all of which have roots in York County, SC, and the surrounding areas. In 2007 Larry wrote and self-published an autobiographical account of growing up in a Southern textile town titled, “Memories of Cramerton: A Cotton Mill Town”. 

“A Hobo Odyssey”, an historical novel based upon true and actual events, is his first attempt at fiction.
