Hell s Angel
The autobiography -- the dangerous life and wild times -- of Sonny Barger, the legendary leader of the Hells Angels. Sonny Barger is the Hells Angel of all Hells Angels, the motorcycle club which has been the scourge of America for over forty years. Sonny was their de facto leader for much of that time, the man who Hunter S. Thompson immortalised in his 1965 classic Hells Angels, noting Barger is nothing short of Winston Churchill when it come to leading people. He's been called an American legend and he's feared and revered by people on both sides of the law. From the club's formation in the 1940s to the height of their notoriety twenty years later, from Sonny's first hand account of what really happened with the Rolling Stones at Altamont to his periods of imprisonment, from his fights with rival gangs and the police to his own battle with cancer, Hell's Angel sets the record straight. Sonny Barger has ridden with the Angels for forty years, obeying no law but that of the HAMC. For the first time, this is his own -- and their own -- story.

On a stretch of deserted ranchland just beyond the canyon's stunning vistas, mysterious murder sprees have occurred every forty years.

The Winchester boys are determined to protect locals and shoppers alike, but they never anticipated they'd be fighting a group of killers this vicious, this vindictive, this . . . dead. A deadly horde of animal spirits and human ghosts has arisen to terrorize this tiny corner of the Arizona desert. If Sam and Dean can't figure out why, the wide-open spaces of the West will once again become a desolate frontier . . . and the witch's canyon will be the brothers' final resting place.
