Octavo (23.5 cm), pp. 62, [2]. Red paper wrappers with black titling. Literary journal containing early Abbey short story (pp. 21-30), former U.S. Poet Laureate Howard Nemerov's "To Lu Chi" and three works by the late Montana poet Richard F. Hugo. Staplebound wrappers have slight wear, side edge of text block with faint foxing, spine is a tad dingy. Edward Abbey (1927-1989) is best known for his comic environmental novel, The Monkey Wrench Gang, and his book of essays, Desert Solitaire. A literary descendant of Thoreau and Muir, Abbey's voice was nonetheless unique for his eloquent expression of anger at the destruction of wildlands, his bawdy humor, and lyrical odes to the American Southwest. His work explores the moral boundaries of anarchism and violence, and was an influence in the founding of the radical environmental group, Earth First!.
