Deliverance meets The Treasure of the Sierra Madre with a good buzz on! Green-bud and greenbacks, from San Franciscos Haight-Ashbury district to the lush but rugged Northern California back-country, Tales of the Emerald Triangle: Memoirs of a Marijuana Grower flies off the page, spinning a fictionalized account of Americas premier marijuana growing region. The book is an intimate look at the lifestyle of the men and women who labor in the fields of this burgeoning (thought illicit) industry. Fresh-faced, if slightly disenfranchised, Duncan Easley attempts to carve out an existence where port plants grow as fast as Kansas corn. But the world of fast money, fast women, and burly 4x4s comes with a price; animosity and anxiety grow quickly as well. Success breeds resentment, rip-offs lurk in the shadows, and increasingly corrupt law enforcement officials rush in to grab what they can. A mans business, his freedom, or his life can disappear as quickly as a puff of smoke. If you ever wondered how world-class marijuana gets to market, and why it costs upwards of $5,000 per pound when it arrives, then read this book.
