Description

This is Hunter Thompson's perception of the 1960s as told through his letters from 1955 to 1967 (age 17 to 29). Addicted to drugs and alcohol at the time, Thompson's rage and drug-taking derived from his understanding of how much better the world could be, yet how little he could do to improve it.
