    Can you really ever separate the naturalist writings from the sociopolitical thoughts of Abbey? Would you ever really want to? I thought this collection did an excellent job of portraying the author in all his facets The truths behind his fiction really begin to emerge by placing these short stories and excerpts side by side I might not agree with everything Abbey committed to paper but I can't deny the sheer honesty and poetry of it

    Edward Abbey was one of the good ones A lover of the desert southwest an anarchist a dirty old man and a fine writer with a sense of humor and outrage This is a good collection from his books of fiction non fiction and essays

    The human world of artifice and imagination can never eual the richness and variety of the real natural nonhuman world But man belongs to the world; he is no enemy or alien than the saguaro the jaguar or the spinning spiderAs always when I am alone in a deep and solitary canyon I become intensely aware of the stillness around me of a need to be strictly attentive fully alert cautious and delicate with every step as if I were under some kind of preternatural observationThis gem was found at the Conroe Texas public library and I read it mostly in the high desert of Texas near the Rio Grande and New Mexico near Deming It's the kind of book I want to keep until I come across someone who I think might appreciate it as much as I did and pass it along to them

    Fictional and factual Abbey was an independent thinker an extremist a 'desert mystic' and a prolific writier Here his longtime editior John Macrae has put together a collection of Edward Abbey's essays travel pieces and works of fiction that parallel events in Abbey's unusual life lj
