Listening to Ed Abbey read selections from Desert Solitaire, The Journey Home, Abbey's Road, and Down the River puts his writings in a whole new perspective. I found myself going back and rereading these selections after listening to the tapes.
Listening to Ed Abbey read selections from Desert Solitaire, The Journey Home, Abbey's Road, and Down the River puts his writings in a whole new perspective. It is as though I never really read them in the first place. Highly recommended if you can find a copy. Don't understand why they are so hard to find. From the back cover, "Vintage Abbey. If I could have only one Abbey work on a desert island, I might choose this. 6 people found this helpful.
Freedom and Wildness book. I "read" this book as an audio tape years ago, read by Abbey himself. It/he was a wonderful companion for road trips in the west. David rated it really liked it Feb 02, 2013.
Grandfather John Vogelin's land is his life - a barren stretch of New Mexican wilderness, mercifully bypassed by civilization. Ed Abbey called The Monkey Wrench Gang, his 1975 novel, a "comic extravaganza. Some readers have remarked that the book is more a comic book than a real novel, and it's true that reading this incendiary call to protect the American wilderness requires more than a little of the old willing suspension of disbelief.

Abbey chose each passage himself from his own journals and previous writings-and warns us in his typical humorous style that some of the notes may be unconscious plagiarisms from the great and dead (never steal from the living and mediocre)
Abbey chose each passage himself from his own journals and previous writings-and warns us in his typical humorous style that some of the notes may be unconscious plagiarisms from the great and dead (never steal from the living and mediocre). Abbey’s last wish was to be buried in an unmarked grave somewhere out in the vast desert he loved so much. A Voice Crying in the Wilderness is an enduring signal from that desert, through the words of one of the singular American thinkers of our times.

Author, essayist, and environmentalist, Edward Abbey gives a talk and reads from his essays and books during an appearance at the Telluride Ideas Festival on August 17, 1986. Abbey is perhaps best known for his radical stance on public land policy and supposed support for eco-terrorism. A true iconoclast, Abbey has been condemned and praised by mainstream environmentalists and conservative Western ranchers alike. He was a pro-gun, anti-immigration, self-declared desert anarchist, who thrived on controversy and was unyielding in his advocacy for wilderness protection.
