Synopsis:

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!


Review:
Ed Abbey called The Monkey Wrench Gang, his 1975 novel, a "comic extravaganza." Some readers have remarked that the book is more a comic book than a real novel, and it's true that reading this incendiary call to protect the American wilderness requires more than a little of the old willing suspension of disbelief. The story centers on Vietnam veteran George Washington Hayduke III, who returns to the desert to find his beloved canyons and rivers threatened by industrial development. On a rafting trip down the Colorado River, Hayduke joins forces with feminist saboteur Bonnie Abbzug, wilderness guide Seldom Seen Smith, and billboard torcher Doc Sarvis, M.D., and together they wander off to wage war on the big yellow machines, on dam builders and road builders and strip miners. As they do, his characters voice Abbey's concerns about wilderness preservation ("Hell of a place to lose a cow," Smith thinks to himself while roaming through the canyonlands of southern Utah. "Hell of a place to lose your heart. Hell of a place... to lose. Period"). Moving from one improbable situation to the next, packing more adventure into the space of a few weeks than most real people do in a lifetime, the motley gang puts fear into the hearts of their enemies, laughing all the while. It's comic, yes, and required reading for anyone who has come to love the desert. --Gregory McNamee

Book Description: Book Condition: New. Publisher/Verlag: Perennial | 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! | "Seit der Veröffentlichung von The Monkey Wrench Gang im Jahr 1975 ist Mr. Abbey ein Held des Underground", schrieb die New York Times. Und das ist nur allzu verständlich. Denn auch jeder, der Abbeys' schräge Heldengeschichte heute liest, wird insgeheim den Wunsch verspüren, der guten Sache wegen irgendetwas in die Luft jagen zu wollen. Ganz so wie Bonnie Abbzug, Seldom See Smith, Doc Sarvis und George Washington Hayduke es tun: Abbeys' sympathische Saboteure, die mit Unmengen Dynamit und viel Leidenschaft die Projekte derer in Schutt und Asche legen, die die Natur im grossen Stil ausbeuten und zerstören. Dass Robert Crumb dieses Buch illustriert hat, ist ein Glücksfall. Seine Bilder machen aus einer sehr guten Geschichte ein Meisterwerk und - man darf es wohl sagen - ein Kultbuch - das sich niemand entgehen lassen sollte. | Format: Paperback | Language/Sprache: english | 365 gr | 421 pp. Bookseller Inventory # K9780061129766
