Lee’s guide to traveling through pre-EU Europe on about $200/month by hopping trains, hitchhiking, and crashing with newfound friends is comprehensive, helpful, and evocative. He stashed his money in his boots and set out on two different tours, riding 23 freight trains in six countries and five times that many passenger trains in nine countries (even paying for a few of those).
