9780060006037: Ridin' High, Livin' Free: Hell-Raising Motorcycle Stories

An angel spreads his wings. . . .

Sonny Barger is the number-one spokesman for the motorcycle experience. His New York Times bestseller, Hell's Angel, was an exhilarating history of his adventures with the world's most notorious motorcycle club. Now he brings us rousing, moving, and wildly entertaining true stories of his renegade brothers and sisters in the relentless pursuit of liberty, individuality, and the "ultimate ride."

And what stories he has to tell -- freewheeling, bare-knuckle tales of brawls and battles, brotherhood, breathtaking adventures, crazy quests, and the inevitable classic scrapes with "John Law." The most colorful legends and unforgettable characters of biker lore come alive in this book. In addition, celebrities like Steve McQueen, Johnny Paycheck, and David Crosby thunder through these pages in a sensational collection of rebel tales that runs the gamut from poignant and inspiring to thrilling and utterly outrageous.

Whether you ride, have never ridden, or dream of riding, Ridin' High, Livin' Free is a reading experience you won't soon forget -- a fascinating glimpse into a unique culture of freedom that recognizes only one commandment: the code of the road.

About the Author:

Ralph "Sonny" Barger is the author of Hell's Angel: The Life and Times of Sonny Barger and the Hell's Angels Motorcycle Club. A master mechanic who has owned and operated his own bike shops, he currently lives in Arizona, where he rides every day.

From AudioFile:

A notorious biker and two ghostwriters present tales--some true, some not, some embellished--of the open road and outlaw life. Lurid romance, violence, and rough humor come packaged in a style meant to represent the oral informality of aging Hell's Angel Sonny Barger, an eyewitness to many of the incidents he relates. Character actor Philip Bosco does justice to the style by sounding like a quasi-literate boozing brawler. One suspects that Barger takes more delight in regaling his barroom buddies with this fare than Bosco takes here. This reviewer is grateful for this, as he find the permanent adolescents and sociopaths limned herein repulsive enough without the glee.
