    1st printing. By Bill Daniel. 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, Daniel has crafted a remarkable first feature with his twenty-years-in-the-making Who Is Bozo Texino?, a documentary about modern day hoboes, rail workers and a forgotten outsider subculture. In the companion book to the film shot aboard speeding freight trains, Daniel mixes experimental and documentary to provide a captivating look at a little-known art form. Tracing the origins to boxcar graffiti from over 100 years ago, Daniel follows rail graffiti's evolution to modern day hobo gatherings, freight hopping trips and secret hobo jungles only known to tried and true hoboes. Along the way Daniel interviews numerous old timers who have spent years on the rails drawing their monikers, among them graffiti legends Colossus of Roads, The Rambler, Herby (RIP) and yes even the ever-illusive Bozo Texino. The interviews provide a fascinating glimpse into the harsh realities of tramp life while also providing a unique backdrop for the more ambient railroad-blues infused soundtrack. Softcover, 6-in. x 9-in., 144 pages, B&W. Cover price $6.95.
