THE FIRST BOOK WRITTEN ON THE HELL'S ANGELS! Jan Hudson was a pseudonym for George W. Smith, an Angel himself. A scarce counter-culture "iconic" book that chronicles much of the origin and current status (circa 1966) of the Hell's Angels. Published by Greenleaf, mostly known at the time for after-hours and pornographic titles, this book is a true contribution to the post-war "teen" rebellion that took place in America in the 60's. Spine unbroken. Hints of wear at edges and corners. A high-grade specimen. OCLC locates "2" copies at time of listing.
From the back panel:
"Here, for the first time, is the complete, true story of the Angels and their Old Ladies and Mamas, their beliefs and own explanations and philosophies."
"Whether you side with them or against them, you'll finish this amazing account with new insight into this most famous group of West Coast rebels..."
