It's possible Bill Daniel is the most inspiring filmmaker of our day. With an impressive filmography that includes work on Craig Baldwin's Sonic Outlaws and as Vanessa Renwick's long-time collaborator, Daniel has crafted a remarkable book to go with his twenty-years-in-the-making Who Is Bozo Texino? - a documentary about modern day hoboes, rail workers and a forgotten outsider subculture. It's a rollicking rail zine of boxcar graffiti and obscure railroad nostalgia - the result of a 25 year obsession with hobo and railworker folklore. Freight riding stories, interviews with hoboes and boxcar artists, historical oddities and tons of photos of modern day boxcar tags are all presented in the guise of a vintage rail fanzine.

"In short, this is a cultural anthropologist's delight. The world we're allowed a glimpse of is a subculture complete with its own language and social mores."
