Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

Edward Abbey's account of two summers spent in Southeastern Utah's Canyonlands. Desert Solitaire reflects profound love of nature and a bitter abhorrence of all that would desecrate it.


Review:

"[The book] is the outgrowth of a bitter awareness of all that has been lost, all that is being lost, all that is going to be lost in that glory of our American democracy, our system of national parks. Designed to set aside, for all the people, wild areas of special beauty, this system orignated with a two-fold purpose: to serve the public and to preserve the areas. These two goals are not in head-on collision. For 'to serve the public' has come to mean 'to serve the public in automobiles'."

Edwin Way Teale, New York Times Book Review, 1/28/68
