The novel written after the classic film, Easy Rider is a milestone in counterculture film-making. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch appropriately described it in 2001 as a "touchstone for a generation[that] captured the national imagination." Easy Rider is a landscape portrait of the 1960's societal tensions: the hippie movement, drug use, and communal lifestyle. The film is infamous for its use of real drugs and other substances (Easy Rider: Shaking the Cage, 1999).
