Synopsis: From tree-spiking old-growth forests to "cracking" desert dams, Earth First! redefined environmentalism in America. Susan Zakin's fast-paced tale of these scruffy radicals and their suit-and-tie counterparts in Washington, D.C., has been described as an unholy marriage of Hunter S. Thompson and Tom Wolfe. The hipster cowboys who founded Earth First! were the first people to sound the alarm on globalization, extinction, and other major environmental issues that face us today. Zakin's gonzo yet impeccably researched account of the rocky trail leading to the morning when FBI agents rousted Earth First! founder Dave Foreman from his bed at gunpoint is essential reading for anyone who cares about mountains, deserts, and freedom.
Review: When a few scruffy "redneck hippies" first gathered in 1980 in the isolated Pinacate of Mexico to discuss environmental issues, none had any idea that they would launch a movement that would involve thousands of activists and a good number of FBI agents. But by the time they emerged from that wild country, Dave Foreman and company had evolved into Earth First!, a group that vowed to protect wild places by whatever means necessary. Susan Zakin traces the movement over 10 years to its splintering in the early 1990s after Foreman and three other activists were arrested for conspiracy to destroy an Arizona nuclear-power plant. Zakin's vivid prose mirrors the movement's excitement, occasional terror, and just as occasional triumph--notably author Edward Abbey's notorious "cracking" of the Glen Canyon Dam in 1981 (a giant roll of black polyurethane provided the illusion that the dam had sprung a leak), which first brought Earth First! national attention.
