Signed by Abbey on the front free endsheet. A collection of excerpts from the author's fiction and essays covers people, politics, and nature from California to North Carolina to Europe, and from New York to southern Mexico to Australia. Edward Abbey (1927-1989) was a celebrated author, essayist, conservationist, noted pain-in-the-ass, and in many ways the father (or at the very least, uncle) of the modern environmental movements.
