Includes essays by: Wendell Berry, William Eastlake, Gary Snyder, Barry Lopez and others. "Resist Much. Obey Little" This phrase from Whitman summarizes much in the life and work of Edward Abbey. In part because of his strong and vocal stance on the destruction of the American West, his books have not always received the critical attention they have deserved. If an author's work can be judged by the quality of his readers, then Edward Abbey is a major author. And as these selections reveal, Edward Abbey is worthy of very close attention.
