Desert solitaire : a season in the wilderness by Edward Abbey ( Book )
45 editions published between 1968 and 2003 in 3 languages and held by 1,935 libraries worldwide
When Desert Solitaire was first published in 1968, it became the focus of a nationwide cult. Rude and sensitive. Thought-provoking and mystical. Angry and loving. Both Abbey and this book are all of these and more. Here, the legendary author of The Monkey Wrench Gang, Abbey's Road and many other critically acclaimed books vividly captures the essence of his life during three seasons as a park ranger in southeastern Utah. This is a rare view of a quest to experience nature in its purest form -- the silence, the struggle, the overwhelming beauty. But this is also the gripping, anguished cry of a man of character who challenges the growing exploitation of the wilderness by oil and mining interests, as well as by the tourist industry. Abbey's observations and challenges remain as relevant now as the day he wrote them. Today, Desert Solitaire asks if any of our incalculable natural treasures can be saved before the bulldozers strike again.

Confessions of a barbarian : selections from the journals of Edward Abbey, 1951-1989 by Edward Abbey ( Book )
8 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 757 libraries worldwide
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. His journals are the closest thing to an Abbey autobiography we will ever have. They reveal his youthful philosophical ruminations about art, love, literature and anarchy; follow his wanderings through Europe and the Eastern States and finally his spiritual home, the American West; and chronicle his lifelong struggle to preserve the disappearing wilderness.--From publisher description.

The serpents of paradise : a reader by Edward Abbey ( Book )
5 editions published between 1995 and 2008 in English and held by 734 libraries worldwide
From boyhood in Home, Pennsylvania, to his death in Tucson, Arizona, in 1989, this book offers - in Abbey's own words - the world of an American original. Whether writing fact or fiction, Abbey was always an autobiographer. Each of the thirty-five selections presented here, arranged chronologically by date of incident (not of publication), demonstrates that Abbey was passionately, insistently his own man. As poet-farmer Wendell Berry puts it: "He remains Edward Abbey, speaking as and for himself, fighting, literally, for dear life ... for the survival not only of nature, but of human nature, of culture, as only our heritage of works and hopes can define it.".
