Reprint. Originally published: New York: Random House, 1966; London: Penguin, 1967. Ill. and text on inside cover.

With 'long hair in the wind, beards and bandanas flapping, earrings, chain whips . . . and Harleys flashing chrome', the Hell's Angels erupted into 1960s America paralysing whole towns with fear.

Determined to discover the truths behind the terrifying reputation of those marauding biker gangs, Hunter S.

Thompson spent a year on the road with the Angels, documenting his hair-raising experiences with Charger Charley, Big Frank, Little Jesus and the Gimp.

Hell's Angels was the result: a masterpiece of underground reportage whose free-wheeling, impressionistic style created the legend of Gonzo journalism, and made Thompson's name as the wild man of American writing.
