Amid this backdrop, Foster quits high school and runs away on a search for his father, who may or may not in fact be long dead. Accompanying Foster is his best friend Jimmy Grant--a wild, impulsive, fiercely loyal, and bisexual black kid whose mother died when he was in grade school. They eventually join together with a mysterious stranger and embark on a ferocious campaign to destroy the oil industry and hasten the collapse of industrial civilization. Their actions inspire others, and before long a full-fledged Environmental Revolution is under way. Redwood Falls builds momentum like a wildfire en route to its explosive, stunning conclusion in the Gulf Coast region of Texas and Louisiana.
"A wild environmental thrill-ride in the grand tradition of Edward Abbey's The Monkey Wrench Gang. Direct action and ecological resistance at its finest!"
