Has anyone ever wondered what it would be like to wonder free, without a car in the world? Mike Brodie was traveled the country in his youth with his camera collecting images of his adventures and friends who embodied a “train punk” lifestyle and but them together in a book titled A Period Of Juvenile Prosperity. An interview with the author was an NPR last week. The link is below.

Though I haven’t read the book yet what I’ve seen from some the pictures seems intriguing. For a sample of some of the pics click on the link below.
