The Monkey Wrench Gang

Staff Review: The Monkey Wrench Gang

"The Monkey Wrench Gang" by Edward Abbey

Cover: 'The Monkey Wrench Gang'

While not a new release, this 1975 classic is well worth a revisit. Ex-Green Beret George Hayduke returns from war to find that his beloved southwestern desert is being threatened by rampant industrial development. Joined by an unlikely group of allies, Hayduke sets out to save the natural landscape that he loves as he rages against men and their machine-driven destruction. This wildly entertaining read will keep you on the edge of your seat as you're placed smack dab at the front of the environmentalist movement.
