Their plans were conceived in a drunken excitement and resulted in more horror than any of them could have imagined. There was the poet able to retreat into beatific reveries of superb fishing in cold, fast streams; the Vietnam vet consumed by uppers, downers, and violence; and the girl who loved only one of them—at first. With their ideals ostensibly in order, they set out from Florida to save the Grand Canyon from a dam they believed was being built. Along with the tape deck for the car, the liquor, and the drugs, there was also a case of dynamite.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Jack Kerouac’s highway hopes claimed by studded tires!…What amazes here is the fact that Harrison never lets up—from chemical high to emotional plunge, one disconnected cry after another. For those who enjoy driving without a steering wheel, this book is a must.” Fiction International
“One of the very best fiction writers in America.” Playboy, praise for the author
“I found myself racing along, utterly caught up in the momentum of the story and eager to find out how it would turn out…Harrison’s perceptions are jagged and cutting…A remarkably well-plotted story.” New York Times
“A singular joy to read.” Harry Crews, author of Scar Lover
