9780760347157: Terry the Tramp: The Life and Dangerous Times of a One Percenter

See what it takes to lead men who count themselves among the one percent.

Terry "the Tramp," born in 1947 to a broken middleclass home and an absentee father in Alhambra, the blistering agricultural region of southern California, grew up with a violent chip on his shoulder. Raised in that tough-as-nails environment, he developed the courage to look right through a man twice his size and read his level of weakness to discover his breaking point.

Terry became the international president of one of the most notorious one percenter motorcycle clubs in southern California, the Vagos MC, and remained in office through upheaval, indictments, drugs, and gang wars for 26 years, until he was unceremoniously extricated. He is still a member after 42 years and never went to prison until this year.

Terry the Tramp takes the reader on a turbulent adventure through Terry's notorious life. Every page sizzles with violent tales wrapped in a razor-sharp edge, as a wild group of outlaws from the Ghost MC, Verdigos, Dirty Dozen, and the Vendettas expanded the club into other areas of California and on to Wyoming, Hawaii, Oregon, Nevada, and Japan.

Learn all about the Vago era--the characters, the motorcycles, the women, and the men. See what propelled this stout, unassuming man into a leadership role that lasted over two decades.

From the Inside Flap :

The life of a one percenter is living outside the box of normal society, surviving in its margins. It's a dreamy, wild existence for some. Others find it fraught with upheaval, treachery, trick bags, and snitches. But there's something inherently romantic about neon reflecting on speeding chrome at 3:00 in the morning, just after ditching an angry cop and a pissed-off husband. Terry "the Tramp" Ordenoff, born in 1947 to a broken middle-class home and an absentee father, grew up in Alhambra, the blistering agricultural region of Southern California, with a violent chip on his shoulder. Raised in that tough-as-nails environment, he developed the balls to look right through a man twice his size, read his level of weakness, and discover his breaking point. Terry became the international president of one of the most notorious one-percenter motorcycle clubs in Southern California, the Vagos MC, and remained in office through upheaval, indictments, drugs, and club wars. Then, after a lifetime of service to the club, he was unceremoniously expelled. As the international president, Terry helped the club expand into Wyoming, Hawaii, Oregon, Nevada, and Japan. He guided his brothers through the marijuana smoke of the hippie era, the needless violence precipitated by the use of reds in the 1970s, followed by the gangster era of speed and cocaine, all the while negotiating the treacherous terrain of club wars and nasty internal conflicts. Terry the Tramp: The Life and Dangerous Times of a One Percenter takes readers through a lifetime spent within the belly of the beast.

From the Back Cover :

Some folks find their way to the right side of the tracks, but a small percentage run through the dark alleys of life. Even a smaller portion survives. Terry "the Tramp" Orendorff not only survived, but thrived, becoming the international president of one of the most notorious one-percenter motorcycle clubs in Southern California, the Vagos MC. Terry the Tramp: The Life and Dangerous Times of a One Percenter takes you through Terry's turbulent life, from his impoverished upbringing in a broken home to his ultimate imprisonment on a trumped-up charge. It's an often violent ride, fueld by reds, cocaine, and PCP, the story a wild group of outlaws from Southern California trying to find their place in an even wilder world, one in which Terry often found himself staring death straight in the eye. Each page comes to life with the characters, the motorcycles, the women, and the men who lived out the story and many more who died trying. This is the ultimate look inside the life of the one percenter.
