** Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
In November 1971,
Rolling Stone published a two-part article by Hunter S. Thompson, called Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas: A Savage Journey to the Heart of the American Dream. From there, Hunter S. Thompson's work has secured a strong foothold in popular culture.

He was irreverent, insightful, and often inebriated. Thompson became a hero of the counter culture, styling his reporting method as "Gonzo", an experimental style of journalism where reporters become the central figures of their stories.
