‘There is something clear-eyed, unaffected and all of a piece about his narrative and his character, which makes both of them likeable, and more than that, somehow worthy. One can imagine Rolling Nowhere becoming a minor classic.” —The Baltimore Sun

“Fascinating ... in some ways a searing indictment of the way this country treats its poor, of how wasteful we are of our resources, both physical and spiritual... also a unique look at a seedier side of life ... an honest portrayal of life in the slow lane, where just getting by is an art in itself.” —The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

“An excellent account.... The next time you’re sitting dead in the roadway in rush hour traffic, read this book.” —The Dallas Morning News

“Consistently interesting. . .. Our curiosity about tramps is part of a complicated fantasy concerning what we call freedom.” —The New York Times

Rolling Nowhere is a book that stays with you.” —Los Angeles Times

“Conover’s hard-luck odyssey . .. produced a book which manages to be highly entertaining while illuminating one of society’s dark recesses.” —Newsday

“A riveting read.” —The Fresno Bee

“His account of the weeks he spent crisscrossing America is a swiftly unfolding narrative of danger, violence, alienation, and sadness. ... Realistic, perceptive.” —American Library Association

Rolling Nowhere succeeds in its ability to bring out this forgotten world of railyard hoboes. Conover... picks up on dozens of fascinating little insights into these men and their way of life.” —Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
