Boxcar Tourist : How I Screwed My Nut
by Kristine Louise Korn and Samuel Ray Cox




Overview -
In this outrageous, irreverent, and touching memoir, Sam Cox describes a life of independent wanderlust, illustrating what it means to adapt and survive life's greatest obstacles. His is a frustrating and stifling beginning, the fourth of five children living with poverty and domestic strife in Lubbock, Texas. The community is fervently religious and judgmental, and this is nowhere Sam wants to live. At sixteen years of age, he finds a free ride out of his personal hell on a freight train, and he heads all the way to the Pacific. And that's only the beginning. From hotshot firefighter to Hollywood actor to Saudi prince bodyguard, this is a man of many lives who offers colorful commentary on everything from religion to the Vietnam War to hopping freight trains. Even when things turn very dark, he faces his life with humor and a sheer will to succeed.
