Brawny-man [Brawnyman]. James Stevens.

Brawny-man [Brawnyman]

New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1926. 323p., first edition, green cloth boards with a bright dj chipped along the edges and at the head and tail of the spine (with loss of Knopf on the spine tail). Not in Hanna, Stevens also wrote a novel partly on the IWW.

"Brawnyman is the autobiography of a working man and the romantic story of American labor. Beginning back in the days of the rapidly expanding West, it chronicles the life of that unique figure, the hobo-laborer, traveling from job to job on box-cars, irresponsible and care-free, consumed by a fierce, relentless appetite for work , play, drink and fighting." - dj blurb.
