Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“Edward Abbey's books remain an indispensable solace. His essays, and his novels, too, are 'antidotes to despair.'” —Wendell Berry
Library Journal
In this collection of previously published essays, Abbey writes on topics as diverse as immigration law, the nature of femininity, and the philosophy of Emerson. The book is divided into three sections: Politics, Travel, and Books and Art. Marvelous portraits of the Rio Grande and the Salmon rivers showcase Abbey's ability to evoke a feeling for the majesty of these places. His political essays are lively and provocative; those discussing books and art reveal him as one who has thought deeply about his craft. An original writer with strong convictions whose latest book is recommended for most collections. -- Randy Dykhuis, Grand Rapids P.L., Mich.
