Overview

In this beautiful 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 are needed, no examinations to undergo, no special equipment required, no experience necessary. A journey to Abbey's wilderness is the most free, cheapest, most nonprivileged of pleasures.

"Abbey has always spoken with special authenticity and confidence...like Thoreau, he is at times ornery and subversive, also undeterred by the tastemakers of his own day--a man still with the bark on." --Edward Hoagland

Minawellen walked in, glaring at Ariana(?). She walked up to her. "I challenge you for the throne. You went away for at least a month without any notice. It is not right for you to keep the crown." She said.
