203pp. A near fine copy in a very good dust jacket. The jacket is rubbed and lightly creased. There are several 1/2 inch long closed tears in the edges. There are also a couple of large chips in the paper at the head of the spine. Minor moisture staining on the top edge of the rear panel. Inside flaps yellowed. Price-clipped. A collection of essays selected personally by the author from his various "picture book" collections: Slickrock, Desert Images, The Hidden Canyon and Cactus Country. Abbey always complained that no one ever read his words in the picture books, they just looked at the photos. The hardbound version of this collection contains the infamous mis-spelling of Larry McMurtry's name on the blurb on the dj: "The Thoreau of the American West-Larry MacMurtry" which is often incorrectly pointed out as a first edition point. The hardbound only had one printing, along with the simultaneous trade paperback, all of which contain the error. It was corrected on subesquent paperbound editions. Abbey was annoyed by the label.
