Desert Solitaire

Desert Solitaire

by Edward Abbey Author

This collection of vignettes about life in the wilderness and the nature of the desert by park ranger and conservationist Edward Abbey-considered the Thoreau of the American West-details his passion for the southwestern wilderness and his unique adventures and conflicts; from dealing with the damage caused by development of the land or excessive tourism to discovering a dead body. A philosophical memoir full of Abbey’s reflections on the desert as a paradox, at once beautiful and liberating but also isolating and cruel. Often compared to Thoreau’s WaldenDesert Solitaire is a powerful discussion of life’s mysteries set against the stirring backdrop of the American southwestern wilderness.
