Desert Solitaire
By: Edward Abbey

I found desert Solitaire to be a great read. It had the ability to create such personal snapshots of desert life in Utah and surrounding areas. Abbey is a ornery writer who is avidly believed that if people spent more time in the wilderness that they would "take arms" against the blind government that committed the atrocities. Yet Abbey is no garden variety hippy with a peace sign. Abbey is a complex, if not enigmatic, desert renegade who experienced loved the desert with a fierce intensity that comes through in his work.

His writing style is uniquely all his own and I laughed out loud a number of times. Desert Solitaire is a book as much about Abbey as the desert. As Abbey would say you can't truly experience the wilderness from your RV in the camp ground, or by stopping at the side of the road to take a picture; you had to get down on your hands and knees and crawl through the dust and rocks and shrubs before you even begin to acknknowledge what is the desert. I highly recommend reading Desert Solitaire.
