Freak Power - Hunter S. Thompson's Campaign for Sheriff ; 2nd ed.

Availability: In stock

Freak Power tells the story of Hunter S. Thompson’s plan to become Sheriff, take control of Aspen, Colorado and transform it from a conservative mining town into a mecca for artists, rebels and activists. Through original print material from the campaign, photographs and political art, Freak Power chronicles a little known period in Hunter S. Thompson’s life, a period when he wrote prolifically about politics, the environment, drugs and American values. As the conservatives and freaks battled it out, the campaign became fraught with violence, accusations and moments of absurdity that bordered on fiction.
