The Rolling Stone career of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson (1937-2005) began auspiciously. One day, he appeared in the San Francisco offices of the rock magazine, six-pack in hand, and announced that he would be the next sheriff of Aspen, Colorado. This ample, 592-page gathering collects forty-two of Thompson's most outrageous and opinionated Rolling Stone pieces, from his first article on the Freak Party platform to his deeply personalized takes on Richard Nixon, Vietnam, Watergate, Muhammad Ali, Bill Clinton, late night drinking buddies and other assorted topics. In addition to the articles, longtime Rolling Stone editor-in-chief and friend Jann Wenner shares memories and his correspondence with the beloved libertarian. Gonzo journalism at its best.
