In a new chapter, Ronald celebrates Abbey's legacy of prose and the authored persona with which he charmed his readers and recalls her own pleasures as a reader of his work. In his new afterword, Scott Slovic offers an assessment of Abbey's later works, including Hayduke Lives!, A Fool's Progress, Earth Apples, and journal selections published posthumously as Confessions of a Barbarian.
The first edition of The New West of Edward Abbey helped draw the attention of an entire generation of students, teachers, and literary scholars to Abbey's achievement as a writer. The new edition will once again serve as a central resource for anyone studying Abbey.
