Synopses & Reviews
In this wise and lyrical book about landscapes of the desert and the mind, Edward Abbey guides us beyond the wall of the city and asphalt belting of superhighways to special pockets of wilderness that stretch from the interior of Alaska to the dry lands of Mexico.
No passports needed, no examinations to undergo, no special equipment required, no experience necessary. A journey into Edward Abbey's wilderness is the freest, cheapest, most nonprivileged of pleasures.
