About the Author
Hunter S. Thompson's research on the Hell's Angels involved more than a year of close association with the outlaws - riding, loafing, plotting and eventually being stomped. A native of Kentucky, he began writing as a sports columnist in Florida. He has worked on newspapers and magazines, becoming South American correspondent for the National Observer. His novels include: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail, 1972 and The Great Shark Hunt.

It's a fantastic account of a way of life that few have ever seen or understood, and as usual, Hunter nails it with his brilliant accuracy and immaculate research.
This in-depth documentary, technically and historically precise, is an absolutely brilliant piece of work.
Macktastic Slim gives his stamp of approval to this book ;)
Even now, nearly fifty years after it was first published, the book doesn't disappoint.
Delivered quickly and safely.
It is interesting reading in another book Sonny Bargers take on some of the events that Thompson writes about - obviously they are coming from different sides - but the two accounts are very contradictory. It would be interesting to hear a third hand account.
