Here’s Ed Abbey’s masterpiece, published exactly as he wrote it, before the editors and publishers got it. Penned on his old manual typewriter are Ed’s thoughts and words. This has never before been available. This volume provides a rare glimpse into the man behind one of the most beloved environmentalist classics of all time. "Desert Solitaire" takes its place alongside Aldo Leopold’s "Sand County Almanac," Rachel Carson’s "Silent Spring," Margery Stoneman Douglas’s "The Everglades: River of Grass" and Henry Beaton’s "The Outermost House."
