Summary

Summary

A BookRiot Pick of Readers' Choices for Best Activism Fiction

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!

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Narrator Michael Kramer’s…ease with fast-paced storytelling adds excitement to the chase scenes amid forbidding Utah terrain. The Monkey Wrench Gang is a classic in fringe political writing. Kramer does justice to this story of old-school radical environmentalism as he brings it to the ears of a new generation of activists.” AudioFile
“Ribald, outrageous, and, in fact, scandalous.” Smithsonian
“Mixes comedy and chaos with enough chase sequences to leave you hungering for more.” San Francisco Chronicle
