Signed by Edward Abbey on the front free endpaper. In "Good News," the West is wild again. American civilization as the twentieth-century knew it has crumbled. In the great Southwest, a new breed of settler is creating a new way of life in the wilderness - a pastoral economy - with skills and savvy resurrected from the pre-industrial past.
