Warmly inscribed by the author on the front free endsheet. The author's fourth novel. A fictional account of the author's time spent as a fire lookout on the north rim of the grand canyon. Abbey blends both the dying of his wife in a New Jersey hospital, and one Carol Turner, who disappeared into Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument into this bittersweet love story. Abbey himself proclaimed this to be his favorite of his books ( I don't believe him) and Utah author Terry Tempest Williams once claimed that her grandmother in a private audience, stated the same.
