The Footloose American free pdf An adventure-filled and thought-provoking travelogue along Hunter S. Thompson's forgottenroute through South America In 1963, twenty-five-year-old Hunter S. Thompson completed a yearlong journey across South America, filing a series of dispatches for an upstartpaper called the "National Observer." It was here, on the front lines of the Cold War, that this then-unknown reporter began making a name for himself. The Hunter S. Thompson who would become America's iconic "gonzo journalist" was born in the streets of Rio, the mountains of Peru, and the black market outposts of Colombia.In "The Footloose American," Brian Kevin traverses the continent with Thompson's ghost as his guide, offering a ground-level exploration of twenty-first-century South American culture, politics, and ecology. By contrasting the author's own thrilling, transformative experiences along the Hunter S. Thompson Trail with those that Thompson describes in his letters and lost "Observer" stories, "The Footloose American" is at once a gripping personal journey and a thought-provoking study of culture and place."
