Summary
Ex-Green Beret George Hayduke returns 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. They (the Monkey Wrench Gang) take on the strip miners, clear-cutters, and the highway, dam, and bridge builders who are threatening the natural habitat in this is a comedic novel of destructive mayhem and outrageous civil disobedience
Summary
Eco-terrorists take the law into their own hands and embark on a "beautification" program of Arizona and Utah. Their ultimate goal is to blow up the Glen Canyon Dam, and along the way this team of misfits--A. K. (Doc) Sarvis, Bonnie Abzug, George Hayduke, and Seldom Seen Smith--wreak havoc across the Southwest. Readers may also enjoy the humorous and sophisticated novels of John Barth, Michael Malone, Carl Hiaasen, and James W. Hall. (Description by: Joyce Saricks) --
