Product description

Product Description

When David Foster Sayers was eight years old, his mother Rita--a bipolar painter and alleged widow--whisked him away in the middle of the night from their home in the San Francisco Bay Area to California's North Coast, home of ancient old-growth redwood trees and one of the last remaining bastions of virgin forests in America. Rita's shocking actions there forever alter the course of Foster's life; her revelations forcibly instill in him a kind of environmental neurosis. Though he feels overwhelming guilt in contributing to deforestation, he is uncontrollably compelled--as if by some outside entity--to write. Foster believes it is his life's purpose.

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!"
-A.S. Beebe
