Description
Edward Abbey was an anarchist, activist, philosopher, and the spiritual father of the environmental movement. He was also a passionate journal keeper, a man who filled page after page with notes, philosophical musings, character sketches, illustrations, musical notations, and drawings. His "scribbling," as he called it, began in 1948, when he served as a motorcycle MP in postwar Italy, and continued until his death in 1989, totaling twenty-one volumes.
Description
Iconoclast, activist, philosopher, and spiritual father of the environmental movement, the author of The Monkeywrench Gang was also an avid journal keeper. Here Abbey's longtime friend David Petersen showcases the best of these journals, complete with Abbey's philosophical musings, notes, character sketches, and illustrations.
