About this title


An unlikely trio of friends - a poet, a Vietnam vet, and a girl - are the characters featured in this story. Driving west from Florida, the three are on their way to buy a case of dynamite to save the Grand Canyon from a dam they believe is about to be built.

From the Publisher:

Their plans were conceived in a drunken excitement and resulted in more horror than any of them could have imagined. There was the poet able to retreat into beatific reveries of superb fishing in cold, fast streams; the Vietnam vet consumed by uppers, downers and violence; and the girl who loved only one of them -- at first. With their ideals ostensibly in order, they set out from Florida to save the Grand Canyon from a dam they believed was being built. Along with the tapedeck for the car, the liquor and the drugs, there was also a case of dynamite.
