Description
This collection of environmental advocate Edward Abbey's letters from 1949 to 1980 offers a fascinating, often hilarious glimpse into the mind of one of America's most iconoclastic writers—the author of The Monkey Wrench Gang and Desert Solitaire.

Thompson, war, John Erlich, enemies, editors, critics, Noam Chomsky, music, sex, Aspen, civilization, Christians, anarchy, family, the publishing world, Buddhism, trophy hunting, the NRA, vasectomies, God, Wendell Berry, men, John McPhee, Robert Redford, wilderness, New York, the Sierra Club, off-road vehicles, the Bible, the East, Jim Harrison, feminism, cheerleaders, Edward Hoagland, patriotism, Franny and Zooey, the Bond girls, cooking, Mormons, immigration, mysticism, Jack Kerouac, cowboys, love, cows, deserts, growth, death, women, betrayal, and Annie Dillard.
