Editorial Reviews:
Review:

"...Abbey at his most passionate, thoughtful, petty, bitter and angry. Abbey's life is worth studying if only as an example of the full range of human emotions."

Tim Sandlin, New York Times Book Review, 12/11/94

Review:

"Abbey's journals show a different side of the environmentalists whose life was filled with numerous, brief, and mostly superficial sexual relationships. Abbey's belief that men crave a variety of partners led him to advocate 'some form of legal, sanitized prostitution.' With enough loopy logic to fill a big top, what these journals begin to make clear is that Abbey's devotion to the land may have been partially a compensation for his lack of empathy for other people."

Miles Harvey, Outside, 1994

Book Description: Johnson Publishing Company, Boulder, Colorado, 2003. Trade Paperback. Book Condition: New. No Jacket. Ending with an entry written 12 days before his 1989 death at age 60, the diaries of the late environmentalist and novelist (The Monkeywrench Gang) are adolescent in spirit, with all the virtues and vices that word implies. Abbey is capable of startling self-righteousness; his fulminations against writers he considers second-rate seem to be motivated as much by jealousy as by genuine bewilderment at his rivals' success. Yet such moments are cut with welcome self-mockery: He calls himself ``E. Abbey, famous unknown author.'' Though he traveled over the world, he finds his spiritual home in the American Southwest, and some of his most moving writing here pays lush homage to the austere landscape or lashes out at those poised to destroy it. Abbey the lover is as vocal as the moralist: exuberantly priapic tributes to one woman after another fill these pages. Petersen, a freelance writer and environmentalist, was a longtime friend of ``Cactus Ed.'' Illustrated with Abbey's drawings. - Publishers Weekly. New Book. Bookseller Inventory # 042108
