The Brave Cowboy

Jack Burnes is a loner at odds with modern civilization. A man out of time, he rides a feisty chestnut mare across the New West — a once beautiful land smothered beneanth airstrips and superhighways. And he lives by a personal code of ethics that sets him on a collision course with the keepers of law and order. Now he has stepped over the line by breaking one too many of society's rulus. The hounds of justice are hot in his trail. But Burnes would rather die than spend even a single night behind bars. And they have to catch him first.

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.

grinstead.jake, January 1, 2010 (view all comments by grinstead.jake)
Simply put, this book changed the way I read and the way I live. Brave Cowboy was my first introduction to Edward Abbey, but not the last book I read by Him.

A strong, simple, touching and yet manly telling of a man on a mission to live simply and outside of the confines of the city and government. One of Edward Abbey's best works, in my opinion.
