Off on a Wild Caboose Chase by Adolf Hungry Wolf with dust jacket Copyright 1989 FIRST EDITION  205 pages
The world of rails holds a nostalgic fascination for millions of Americans who remember a train whistling around a bend with a steam engine leading and a caboose bringing up the rear. Adolf Hungry Wolf, expert on American Indian culture and well-known author of train lore, has had a lifelong love affair with the rails. Here he relates many tales from his encyclopedic knowledge of the railroad and, in particular, the caboose. The most beloved of all railcars because they were home to the crew, cabooses were surrounded by myth, legend, and sometimes truth far stranger than fiction.
Adolf Hungry Wolf purchased an old caboose to use as his office and transported it many miles over rail and road to his home in British Columbia. That arduous, if scenic, journey is described, and he gives recommendations for how similar cabooses can be obtained and used by their fans. He also includes suggestions for some scenic and historic train trips in North America that he and his son Okan have discovered over the years.
This fascinating collection of true adventures, folklore, and farewell tribute to the old train caboose is illustrated by stunning photographs, many of them from the author's own historic collection.
