About the Author
Edward Abbey spent most of his life in the American Southwest. He was the author of numerous works of fiction and nonfiction, including the celebrated Desert Solitaire, which decried the waste of America's wilderness, and the novel The Monkey Wrench Gang, the title of which is still in use today to describe groups that purposefully sabotage projects and entities that degrade the environment. Abbey was also one of the country's foremost defenders of the natural environment. He died in 1989.
"Abbey is a fresh breath from the farther reaches and canyons of the diminishing frontier."--Houston Chronicle
"Abbey writes with fierce eloquence of landscape and city, of stunted souls and drunken despair. He can be funny and poignant at once"--Publishers Weekly
"We are living... among punishments and ruins. For those that know this, Edward Abbey's books remain an indispensable solace."--Wendell Berry
