Buck Emberg still does not know what he wants to be when he grows up.  Perhaps that is because he has already done so many things.

Born in Northern Minnesota , 1933, Buck Emberg has been adventurer and world wanderer.  He has been a university teacher, lecturer, railroad clerk, clergyman, fish gutter, journalist, restaurant owner, cleaner of spittoons and bicyclist to name a few of his occupations.  Needless to say, he is a restless bloke.

This book reflects his academic background of social history and his ability to see humour in virtually every situation.  Hard Rails is a tough, loving and funny book about the Depression and world War II days in the rugged railroad/mining town of mythical Knottsville, Minnesota.

You will weep, you will laugh, you will be amazed at the depths of this book.
