Availability: This title is currently not available.


Part mad manifesto, part revolutionary love letter, and part freight train adventure story, this personal tale is a twist on the classic punk rock travel narrative that searches for authenticity and connection in the lives of strangers and the solidarity and limitations of underground community. Beginning at the start of the internet agea time when radical zine culture prefigured social networking sitesthese writings paint an illuminated trail through a complex labyrinth of illegal immigrants, anarchist community organizers, radical seed savers, punk rock historians, social justice farmers, mad movement activists, and creative rebel bridge builders. The book takes readers on a journey from the late 1980s gentrification battles in the streets of New York City to the rise of the millennial Global Justice Movement, all the way to the awakening of Occupy Wall Street. Rather than asking fellow activists to watch from sidelines, the book beckons them to join in the story.
