Summary
Thoughts on nature, politics, love, and much more-from the environmentalist and author of such classics as Desert Solitaire and The Monkey Wrench Gang. Finished just two weeks before his death, A Voice Crying in the Wilderness is a collection of Edward Abbey's observations, both bitingly witty and inspirational, on a wide range of topics-from philosophy and writing to music, money, sex, and sports. Abbey chose each passage himself from his own journals and previous writings-and warns us in his typical humorous style that some of the notes "may be unconscious plagiarisms from the great and dead (never steal from the living and mediocre)." Abbey's last wish was to be buried in an unmarked grave somewhere out in the vast desert he loved so much. A Voice Crying in the Wilderness is an enduring signal from that desert, through the words of one of the singular American thinkers of our times
