Description

Ex-Green Beret George Hayduke has returned from war to find his beloved southwestern desert threatened by industrial development. Joining with Bronx exile and feminist saboteur Bonnie Abzug, wilderness guide and outcast Mormon Seldom Seen Smith, and libertarian billboard torcher Doc Sarvis, M.D., Hayduke is ready to fight the power—taking on the strip miners, clear-cutters, and the highway, dam, and bridge builders who are threatening the natural habitat. The Monkey Wrench Gang is on the move—and peaceful coexistence be damned!

Features

  • Overview:
  • The bridge -- a monument to progress -- is decked out with bunting and Day-Glo, ready for christening. Suddenly its center rises and splits along a jagged line. A sheet of red flames streaks skyward. The Monkey Wrench Gang strikes again!
  • What next? Can the gang be planning a beautification project for Glen Canyon Dam?
  • A tragicomedy in the classic sense. Man against the system -- against concrete, steel and parking lot wastelands. Beautifully constructed, imaginatively detailed and faultlessly crafted with every effect looped to its matching cause." (Houston Chronicle)
  • The backlist bestselling underground cult classic that raised American consciousness of environmentalism, reissued in a trade paperback edition. When a gang of renegades sets forth on their mission to destroy the power lines, new road and bridges springing up across their cherished desert, all hell breaks loose.
