Desert Solitaire.
Edward Abbey
Ballantine Books, 1991.

Review: "...not a travel guide but an elegy. A memorial." A direct quote from Edward Abbey's introduction to Desert Solitaire, written in 1967. Utah's Canyon country, Moab, and Arches National Park must have been a remote, wonderful, wild, and inspirational place when Abbey was a seasonal park ranger there. The industrial tourism in US national parks, to which he so strongly objected, has indeed come to pass. This book is an eloquent and passionate plea for the preservation of wild places. It is a must read for anyone who has ever visited southern Utah or plans to do so. Highly recommended. --
