Description
A mix of fiction and essays by the author described as "the Thoreau of the American West" (Larry McMurtry, The Washington Post ). Edward Abbey himself compiled this volume representing some of his greatest work--including selections from such novels as The Monkey Wrench Gang , The Brave Cowboy , and Black Sun , as well as a number of expressive and acerbic essays. Renowned for inspiring modern environmentalists--though his interests ranged as widely as the landscapes he loved--Abbey offers an entertaining introduction to his writing, including excerpts from the autobiographical Desert Solitaire , in addition to his own sketches illustrating the text throughout.
