EDWARD ABBEY, 1927-1989
A maverick, a fly in the ointment, an environmentalist, a naturalist, an enemy, an ally, a thrower of beer cans, a dam hater, a river lover......... call him what you like. In the words of Wendell Berry "No sooner has a label been stuck to his back by a somewhat hesitant well-wisher than he runs beneath a low limb and scrapes it off". Ed defied simple description for one very basic reason... He was a very complicated man. A man of letters who took his writing as seriously as his love of nature. He wrote the good and the bad. Some of his words irritate just about everybody. Many of his words change lives. And that's just the way he wanted it. He despised the Abbey wannabe, yogurt lipped, granola heads who clung to his every word. He dismissed them as not having the intelligence or the steel to make their own decisions. He surprised himself

Edward Abbey
By Sandra Yost Edward Abbey was born in 1927 in the Appalachian area of Pennsylvania. He was the oldest of five children born to a family of Scotch-German descent. His anti-capitalist father was a trapper and logger with Marxist leanings; his religious mother was a school teacher. As a child he wrote his own comic books but did not pass journalism in high school. Abbey graduated in 1945 from high school, where he was a top student. Thinking he would be drafted into the army, he decided to tour the country first. At age 17 he hitchhiked west. From 1943-1947 he served in the army. The day he completed basic training in Alabama, the Japanese surrendered. The rest of his hitch was spent in Naples, Italy as a motorcycle MP. When he returned to the States in 1947, Abbey entered the University of New Mexico; this is where he became interested in writing and served as editor for the student literary magazine, "The Thunderbird." He ultimately took his MA in Philosophy from there. He resided in the Southwest from 1947 until his death. Home to him was Arizona, New Mexico, Utah, and Nevadathe whole Southwest. Although he preferred country life, Abbey still wanted to live within 50 or 60 miles of a city. Writing was a passion for Abbey. It was not a career; it was his life. It was said that "he was neither left wing nor right wing, nor was he an outlaw. He wrote against the grain, always choosing the path of greatest resistance" (Bishop, 2). Abbey did jail time for reckless driving and public drunkenness, as did many of his characters, and there is violence in most of his books. When asked about this he replied, "As for violence, I'm against it for I am a practical coward." He believed the modern world contains violence as a part of it but that few things are worth killing for.

Edward Abbey was the novelist who first coined the term monkeywrenching in hisbook about ecosabotage, The Monkey Wrench Gang. Sources. Abbey, Edward.
Edward Abbey was the novelist who first coined the term "monkeywrenching" in his book about eco-sabotage, The Monkey Wrench Gang Born in 1927, Abbey grew up on a farm in western Pennsylvania's Allegheny Mountains. At 17 he roamed the West for the first time. After high school graduation, Abbey was drafted and stationed in Italy as a military policeman until his discharge in 1947. Abbey returned to the Southwest, where he lived for the rest of his life. He received his bachelor's and master's degrees from the University of New Mexico. Abbey wrote of America's trashing of the natural world, particularly the West, with the humor, provocative satire and biting wit of a good storyteller. He died in 1989. He wrote "to defend the diversity and freedom of humankind from those forces in our modern techno-industrial culture that would reduce us all, if we let them, to the status of things, objects, raw material, personnel; to the rank of subjects." (E.A., Abbey's road "I predict that the military-industrial state will disappear from the surface of the Earth within fifty years. That belief is the basis of my inherent optimism, the source of my hope for the coming restoration of a higher civilization: scattered human populations modest in number that live by fishing, hunting, food-gathering, small-scale farming and ranching, that assemble once a year in the ruins of abandoned cities for great festivals of moral, spiritual, artistic and intellectual renewal - a people for whom the wilderness is not a playground but their natural and native home" (E.A.

About Edward Abbey
The late author Edward Abbey, 1927-1989, hadwritten five novels and published three of them by the time Desert Solitaire: A season in the Wilderness was published in 1968. While the rest of America was deeply divided over the Vietnam War, both in the killing fields of the Middle East and the streets of the U.S.A., Edward Abbey was sitting on rocks contemplating his existence and that of the planet's from the remote perspective of what was then an obscure national monument in southeastern Utah called Arches. From those ruminations in a rusty aluminum trailer with a rattlesnake living underneath came a book destined to become a classic, as much as Abbey detested classics, and never wanted to become one. Like Aldo Leopold's Sand County Almanac and Rachel Carson's Silent Spring and Wendell Berry's The Unsettling of America, Desert Solitaire is one of a handful of books written in the twentieth century regarding wilderness and the natural world and man's relationship to it that transcend their genre and speak to the world at large. I submit that with the publication of Desert Solitaire almost thirty years ago that Edward Abbey single handedly created a new form of literature; neither travel narrative or nature writing, that lifts Desert Solitaire out of any category and ensures that the book, and the author will be read well into the 21st century and beyond. Abbey has often been compared to Henry David Thoreau, a comparison Ed Abbey didn't take as a compliment. As the nauralist Ann Zwinger put it speaking at the memorial wake we had for Abbey down at Arches National Park, when people compare Ed Abbey and Henry Thoreau, they ususally forget that Thoreau went home for dinner every night. Ed Abbey's physical and philosophical travels often took him far away from a home cooked meal every night and into territory that Thoreau could only dream about.

He was a hero to environmentalists and the patron saint of monkeywrenchers, a man in love with desert solitude. A supposed misogynist, ornery and contentious, he nevertheless counted women among his closest friends and admirers. He attracted a cult following, but he was often uncomfortable with it. He was a writer who wandered far from Home without really starting out there. James Cahalan has written a definitive biography of a contemporary literary icon whose life was a web of contradictions.

by Edward Abbey
Edward Abbey's Desert Solitaire, the noted author's most enduring nonfiction work, is an account of Abbey's seasons as a ranger at Arches National Park outside Moab, Utah. Abbey reflects on the nature of the Colorado Plateau desert, on the condition of our remaining wilderness, and on the future of a civilization that cannot reconcile itself to living in the natural world. He also recounts adventures with scorpions and snakes, obstinate tourists and entrenched bureaucrats, and, most powerful of all, with his own mortality. Abbey's account of getting stranded in a rock pool down a side branch of the Grand Canyon is at once hilarious and terrifying.

By Wendell Berry
Reading through a sizable gathering of reviews of Edward Abbey's books, as I have lately done, one becomes increasingly aware of the extent to which this writer is seen as a problem by people who are, or who think they are, on his side. The problem, evidently, is that he will not stay in line. No sooner has a label been stuck to his back by a somewhat hesitant well-wisher than he runs beneath a low limb and scrapes it off. To the consternation of the "committed" reviewer, he is not a conservationist or an environmentalist or a boxable ist of any other kind; he keeps on showing up as Edward Abbey, a horse of another color, and one that requires some care to appreciate.
He is a problem, apparently, even to some of his defenders, who have an uncontrollable itch to apologize for him: "Well, he did say that . But we mustn't take him altogether seriously. He is only trying to shock us into paying attention." Don't we all remember from our freshman English class how important it is to get the reader's attention ?
Down the River in The Nation of May 1, 1982. In it, Mr. Drabelle accused Mr. Abbey of elitism, iconoclasm, arrogance, and xenophobia; he found that Mr. Abbey's "immense popularity among environmentalists is puzzling" and observed that "many of his attitudes give aid and comfort to the enemies of conservation."

What follows is the transcript of an interview conducted by Eric Temple with Ed Abbey in December 1982. The interview took place in the cabin behind Abbey's Tucson home and was videotaped for a program produced by KAET-TV in Phoenix, Arizona. Portions of the interview were made into a half hour program called "Edward Abbey's Road" which aired in Arizona and many PBS stations nationwide in 1983. Thanks to Clarke Abbey for permission to print this excerpt. ET) What do you see as the major environmental problem in Arizona right now? EA) Progress. Development, Growth, Industryeverything that the politicians and the chamber of commerce loves, I'm against. I think it's gradually destroying Arizona, and I don't think it will surviveI think we're using up our resource base, especially water, much faster than it can ever be replaced. Therefore, unless some sort of technological miracle saves us, I imagine that Phoenix and Tucson will be small towns again, and probably very nice places to live. I was just reading a very good book by Charles Bowden, "Killing the Hidden Waters" which goes into this subject in great detail, historical and geological. He describes how the Papago Indians survived out here simply by living off the land, mainly hunting and gathering. Surviving on surface watera few springs and flash floods for farming, and they got by for 10, maybe 20 thousand years. 'Course they didn't create what most of us would consider a very brilliant civilization, but they had a satisfying way of life and were probably as happy as most modern Americans.

Book review
Journeys Beyond the Wall Abbey, Edward. Beyond the Wall . New York, NY. Holt, Rinehart, and Winston.
1984, 203 p. $14.95
Is it possible to yearn for miles upon miles of sand, rock, and temperatures
that soar above 100 degrees Fahrenheit? According to the gruff naturalist
and angry conservationist Edward Abbey the answer is yes. In his book of
essays, Beyond the Wall, he takes the reader on a journey through what some
might consider no-man's land- the desert of the American southwest. Abbey most definitely takes the reader beyond walls and into his life and
explorations as a self-proclaimed "desert rat". He walks through the
canyonlands of Utah, hikes across the dunes of Northern Mexico, rafts the Colorado River through Glen Canyon and also rafts through the Alaskan wilderness. Abbey's tone throughout these ten essays is one of wonder at the harsh beauty of nature and a contained rage at those who destroy it with technological "progress". In his essay, "The Damnation of a Canyon", Abbey remembers a past when nature was for everyone, not limited to the affluent who can afford the now
