memories of my father

By Billy Clyde

from Mosquero, New Mexico

Verified Reviewer

Comments about PBS American Experience: Riding the Rails DVD:

My father rode the rails searching for work. He told me great stories about people he met while doing so. One story about a man who saved his life because of my fathers inexperience on riding the rails. He sang me songs when I was young. Songs by Jimmie Rodgers about hobos he heard while staying in "jungles"
