THE MONKEY WRENCH GANG PAPERBACK
This product is currently sold out.
The Monkey Wrench Gang is one of our favorite books & clearly a huge influence on Barnaby Black (check out our Monkey Wrenchers Oil). This is truly a staple for all nature lovers & anyone who believes that our wilderness & all it's wonderful biodiversity is worth way more than the destruction of it for natural resources.
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!
Easily Edward Abbey's most famous work of fiction, the novel concerns the use of sabotage to protest environmentally damaging activities in the southwestern US, and was so influential that the term "monkey wrench" has come to mean, besides sabotage and damage to machines, any sabotage, activism, law-making, or law-breaking to preserve wilderness, wild spaces and ecosystems.
