More than twenty-five years after his death, iconic writer and nature activist Edward Abbey (1927–1989) remains an influential presence in the American environmental movement. Abbey’s best known works continue to be widely read and inspire discourse on the key issues facing contemporary American society, particularly with respect to urbanization and technology. Abbey in America, published forty years after Abbey’s popular novel The Monkey Wrench Gang, features an all-star list of contributors, including journalists, authors, scholars, and two of Abbey’s best friends as they explore Abbey’s ideas and legacy through their unique literary, personal, and scholarly perspectives.

Book Description University of New Mexico Press, Albuquerque, NM, 2015. Hardcover. Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. First edition. 218pp. Octavo [24 cm] Red cloth-effect paper over boards. In the pictorial dust jacket, featuring a cover engraving of Edward Abbey entitled The River Rat by John A. Murray. 16 halftones. "Ed was my friend, and I never picked friends because they agreed with me or were useful to me. For me, friendship, like love, lacks a motive. And often, there are rough edges, just as the ground that matters most to me can rake me with bad storms. Since he died, there has been a hole in my life, and this hole has surprised me because I think I have been around more than my share of dying and killing and did not expect his death to be more than a passing pain for me. People sometimes look me up and want to interview me about Ed. They always had two questions it seems. Where do we find the next Ed Abbey? And what should we do now that he is gone and can't tell us what to do? I always tell them the same thing: we don't need a new Ed Abbey, the old one is pretty damned serviceable." - Charles Bowden, "On the Edge with Edward Abbey, Charles Ives, and the Outlaws," in Abbey in America.
