About this title

Synopsis:

DESERT SOLITAIRE is the story of the author's experiences during three seasons as ranger in charge of the Arches National Monument, a 33,000 acre preserve in Utah's high desert.

Like Thoreau before him, Abbey reflects on the happiness a man can find within himself, particularly when alone in the wild. Unlike WALDEN, Abbey's book is concerned with wilderness preservation, and he goes after the spoilers with energy.

Review:

With language as colorful as a Canyonlands sunset and a perspective as pointed as a prickly pear, Cactus Ed captures the heat, mystery, and surprising bounty of desert life. Desert Solitaire is a meditation on the stark landscapes of the red-rock West, a passionate vote for wilderness, and a howling lament for the commercialization of the American outback.
