Overview

The bridge -- a monument to progress -- is decked out with bunting and Day-Glo, ready for christening. Suddenly its center rises and splits along a jagged line. A sheet of red flames streaks skyward. The Monkey Wrench Gang strikes again!

What next? Can the gang be planning a beautification project for Glen Canyon Dam?

"A tragicomedy in the classic sense. Man against the system -- against concrete, steel and parking lot wastelands. Beautifully constructed, imaginatively detailed and faultlessly crafted with every effect looped to its matching cause." (Houston Chronicle)

Funny, entertaining book This book is so well known in the activist community, as well as Abbey. It is a controversial book but by no means is it lacking entertainment! It does have some crude humor, and there are some parts you will really disagree with, but it is laugh out loud funny & the situations have such truth to them. Abbey's characters use direct actions to attack those abusing the earth for profit. The writing was so ahead of it's time! Really a timeless book. If you are into animal rights, enviromentalism, etc it really is a must read.
