A Gripping Portrait of the 1970s Counterculture in this National Book Award-Winning Novel -- Available for the First Time Ever on Audio! In Saigon during the waning days of the Vietnam War, a small-time journalist named John Converse thinks he'll find action--and profit--by getting involved in a big-time drug deal. But back in the States, things go horribly wrong for him. Dog Soldiers perfectly captures the underground mood of America in the 1970s, when amateur drug dealers and hippies encountered profiteering cops and professional killers--and the price of survival was dangerously high. Presented unabridged on 8 CDs, read by Tom Stechschulte.
