What the community says about Desert Solitaire
- "Desert Solitaire by Edward Abbey it's more of an adventure story than a book on counter–culture. It will completely change the way you see parks, deserts and nature in general. Ultimately it will get people to ask do we adapt to nature or do we try to adapt nature to us?"
- "It is an fantastic autobiographical work by American writer Edward Abbey, eventually recognized as an iconic work of nature writing and a staple of early environmentalist writing, bringing Abbey critical acclaim and popularity as a writer of environmental, political, and philosophical issues. Edward Abbey lived for three seasons in the desert at Moab, Utah, and what he discovered about the land before him, the world around him, and the heart that beat within, is a fascinating, sometimes raucous, always personal account of a place that has already disappeared, but is worth remembering and living through again and again.
