Exploration two

The person that I admire the most so far in this book would have to be "Stream Train" Maury Graham. I admire Maury because he is proud to be a Hobo. Also because of his story, He first went on the rode when he was just thirteen years old. He got into camp with old hobos that he didn't even know before. Maury demonstrates creativity by telling us about his memories he had and how much he loved being a hobo and how much fun he had. A passage that I really like would be "You go in those bum camps and you might not come out of there, cause they'll rob you and they'll hit you in the head. But if you stay around the hoboes they'll look out for you and they'll treat you nice." I really like that passage because it shows you the difference between a hobo and and a bum. Before i read that I thought a hobo and a bum were the same thing.
