Historical NoteReturn to Top
EdwardAbbey (1927-1989) was a teacher, a writer, an advocate of environmentalism, and a vocal critic of public land policies. His writings, especially his novel The Monkey Wrench Gang are still used as inspiration by radical environmental groups. His book, Desert Solitaire, is a partial autobiography centering on Abbey's years as a park ranger in southwestern Utah. For a more recent view, see the biography EdwardAbbey, A Life, by James M. Cahalan.
