From the Inside Flap:

one of the most provocative and important writers on the American West. Since his death in 1989, his novels and numerous works of nonfiction have continued to attract, inspire, and influence an expanding audience. In this volume, 37 of Abbey's friends, students, and contemporaries remember his life and work. Resist Much, Obey Little is a fascinating memorial to an icon of the environmental movement who lived bravely and wrote with prophetic genius.
-- Ann Zwinger recalls Abbey's kindness on a river rafting trip;
-- Wendell Berry struggles to define a man who defied conventional labels;
-- Barbara Kingsolver remembers working with Abbey as a fiction contest judge;
-- Edward Hoagland solemnly describes Abbey's death and burial in the desert.
