    Pure Gonzo

    Atlanta, Georgia- Gonzo Journalism founder Hunter S. Thompson in Kingdom of Fear: Loathsome Secrets of a Star-Crossed Child in the Final Days of the American Century book rants and raves into his final crusade the lost American dream.
    America was suppose to be a new beacon of hope among men, and the founders sought to bring the best ideas forward to facilitate the evolution of the this great experiment of democracy forward.
    What Thompson does is deconstructs these ideas and delves into the failure of government.
    This book is a collection of stories and adventures from originating from the fifties to the later part of the 20th century. In his later days, disillusion Thompson kept his keen eye on the true landscape of the disintegrating place known as the USA.
