Publisher's Summary

Caught by police with moonshine in the trunk of his uncle's car, Everett Dumphee is faced with the decision to spend 10 years in prison or enlist in the United States Army. He opts for what he thinks is freedom - a hitch in the Army. Due to bureaucratic negligence, Dumphee - incorrectly labeled as the fastest bootleg driver in West Virginia - is issued the occupational specialty designation of Expert Truck Driver. Subsequently, he is selected for a top-secret assignment in a newly designed and state-of-the-art All Terrain Vehicle.

While transporting a contraband Russian time machine and developmental weaponry from Trenton Arsenal in New Jersey to the Experimental Weapons Battalion in Denver, Colorado, Dumphee finds himself cast into new settings when the device suddenly activates. What follows are fantastic high-tech experiences that might be called the ultimate off-road adventure.

For the determined Dumphee - narrowly escaping with his life and three beautiful women - it is not necessarily a matter of will that he make it to his destination, but when. These four vivid characters trek through this fun and fast-moving journey like there's no tomorrow. Whatever that may be.

In A Very Strange Trip, New York Times best-selling authors L. Ron Hubbard and Dave Wolverton deliver a highly absorbing and entertaining story with more than one interesting twist.

What the Critics Say

"L. Ron Hubbard wrote successfully in almost every genre imaginable, so it only makes sense that he tried his hand at lighthearted satire. In this 1999 novelization of an original Hubbard screenplay, character actor Tait Ruppert has a gleeful time playing the clueless but always-intrepid West Virginia moonshiner’s son, Everett Dumphee, who accidentally turns on a covert military time machine and takes off into the past. His adventures include wooing Native American maidens and battling saber-toothed tigers. Galaxy Press has added a bed of realistic, film-like sound effects and a complete musical score to keep the action hopping, while a host of Hollywood voice talents provides good pacing and comic-book voices to this playful spoof of everything sci-fi."

    "Great experience"

    This was the best audible book I have listened to. Dave Wolverton has done a great job with Hubbard's story. I will be looking for more like this. The voice charactrizations and background sounds make for a most enjoyable experience. Thank you Audible.

    "Indeed a very strange trip"

    What a fantastic audiobook! I listened to it for my commute to and from work everyday. Couldn't wait to get in the car in the morning for the next installment of this exciting and indeed 'trippy' book. 5 out of 5.
