About

First edition, published by Random House, 1967.

The strange and terrible saga of the outlaw motorcycle gangs.

In this early example of gonzo journalism, Hunter S. Thompson immerses himself in the world of the most notorious motorcycle gang, The Hell’s Angels. Through spending time with the San Francisco and Oakland chapters, and particularly with Sonny Barger, Thompson created the most detailed and researched account of the Hell’s Angels’ ideologies and activities. Despite making numerous taped interviews, drinking at their bars and becoming close with many of the members, his time spent with the gang was not short of violent threats, and a beating. This book soon became a cult Classic and launched Thompson’s career as a writer.
