Ex-Green Beret George Hayduke has returned 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--taking on the strip miners, clear-cutters, and the highway, dam, and bridge builders who are threatening the natural habitat. The Monkey Wrench Gang is on the move--and peaceful coexistence be damned!

Ecology-minded Doc, Bonnie, Seldom-Seen, and Hayduke don't take kindly to seeing their beloved American Southwest canyon country privatized, subdivided, bulldozed, paved-over, strip mined, overgrazed, or otherwise defiled by land speculators and corporate energy conglomerates. No, no they don't. That much is certain. But what to do about it? Well, let's just say they have their methods. To them, it's a battle between good and evil for the environment. "Somebody has to do it!" says Bonnie. Set in southern Utah, this group of four rag-tagged eco-freaks proceed to do it. Throw a monkey wrench into the works. In a major way. But in the end, will the "Monkey Wrench Gang" or the moneyed interests prevail? Highly recommended.
