Abbey calls this the absolutely terminal edition, the definitive edition of Desert Solitaire.
Abbey is one of our very best writers about wilderness country, especially the desert, observes Wallace Stegner in the Los Angeles Times Book Review, and also states, he is a gadfly with a stinger like a scorpion.
Said Larry McMurtry in the Washington Post, Edward Abbey is the Thoreau of the American West.
The classic drama of a year alone as a ranger in a national park. This book may well seem like a ride on a bucking bronco.—New York Times Book Review
