Edward Abbey:
Desert Solitaire - Taschenbuch

ISBN: 0671695886

[SR: 9591], Paperback, [EAN: 9780671695880], Touchstone, Touchstone, Book, [PU: Touchstone], 1990-01-15, Touchstone, Hailed by The New York Times as a passionately felt, deeply poetic book, the moving autobiographical work of Edward Abbey, considered the Thoreau of the American West, and his passion for the southwestern wilderness.Desert Solitaire is a collection of vignettes about life in the wilderness and the nature of the desert itself by park ranger and conservationist, Edward Abbey. The book details the unique adventures and conflicts the author faces, from dealing with the damage caused by development of the land or excessive tourism, to discovering a dead body. However Desert Solitaire is not just a collection of one man s stories, the book is also a philosophical memoir, full of Abbey s reflections on the desert as a paradox, at once beautiful and liberating, but also isolating and cruel. Often compared to Thoreau s Walden, Desert Solitaire is a powerful discussion of life s mysteries set against the stirring backdrop of the American southwestern wilderness., 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., 9681289011, Social Activists, 2396, Leaders & Notable People, 2, Biographies & Memoirs, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 9681288011, Environmentalists & Naturalists, 2419, Professionals & Academics, 2, Biographies & Memoirs, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 9, History, 4762, Africa, 4808, Americas, 16252761, Arctic & Antarctica, 4884, Asia, 4921, Australia & Oceania, 4935, Europe, 4995, Middle East, 5032, Russia, 4853, United States, 5035, World, 4873, Ancient Civilizations, 5011, Military, 4987, Historical Study & Educational Resources, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 16311131, Natural History, 14452, Nature & Ecology, 75, Science & Math, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 290062, Conservation, 52215011, Energy, 14452, Nature & Ecology, 75, Science & Math, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 290073, Deserts, 290071, Ecosystems, 14452, Nature & Ecology, 75, Science & Math, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 171225, Nature Writing & Essays, 14452, Nature & Ecology, 75, Science & Math, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 290441, Environmentalism, 14459, Environment, 75, Science & Math, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 26, Sports & Outdoors, 16315, Baseball, 16327, Basketball, 2446, Biographies, 13922616011, Children's & Youth Sports, 266218, Coaching, 13022441, Extreme Sports, 290078, Field Guides, 16378, Football (American), 16381, Golf, 16384, Hiking & Camping, 16477, Hockey, 16479, Hunting & Fishing, 16533, Individual Sports, 16596, Miscellaneous, 68140, Mountaineering, 290127, Nature Travel, 16615, Other Team Sports, 290108, Outdoor Recreation, 16626, Racket Sports, 13022451, Rodeos, 16638, Soccer, 13022471, Softball, 864488, Survival Skills, 16640, Training, 16645, Water Sports, 16676, Winter Sports, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books

Desert Solitaire - gebrauchtes Buch

1968, ISBN: 9780671695880

ID: 2435309

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. Desert Solitaire Abbey, Edward / Parnall, Peter, Touchstone Books
