Synopsis:

When his third wife abandons him in Tucson, boozing, misanthropic anarchist Henry Holyoak Lightcap shoots his refrigerator and sets off in a battered pick-up truck for his ancestral home in West Virginia. Accompanied only by his dying dog and his memories, the irascible warhorse (a stand-in for the "real" Abbey) begins a bizarre cross-country odyssey--determined to make peace with his past--and to wage one last war against the ravages of "progress."

Book Description: Henry Holt Company Inc, United States, 1998. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 216 x 140 mm. Brand New Book. Ornery and unpredictable, Edward Abbey was an autobiographer, writes the farmer-poet Wendell Berry, speaking as and for himself, fighting, literally, for dear life. And this novel, the fat masterpiece, as Ed labeled it, was his most important piece of writing: it reveals the complete Ed Abbey, from the green grass of his memory as a child in Appalachia to his approaching death in Tucson at age sixty-two. Funny and ribald, it offers what Larry McMurtry has called Abbey s fine particularity, the authority of a writer who feels a lot and then manages to transcend his own notions of himself.
