    Desert Solitaire PDF EPUB ç Paperback desert free, solitaire download, Desert Solitaire PDFEPUB Desert Solitaire seemed the right book to take along on a trip to the southwest in September 2009 Abbey writes of the beauty of the southwest As a ranger at Arches National Park he had a close relationship with some of our country’s most exuisite scenery In the 18 essays that make up the book he offers not only his appreciation for the sometimes harsh environment of Utah and Arizona but his notions on things political Those are not so compelling He tells tales of people he has known and in doing so enhances an image of his southwest as at once a beautiful and terrible place North Window in Arches National ParkHowever I have concluded with apologies to Ernest Thompson that Edward Abbey is an old poop It is one thing to have a deep and abiding appreciation for a place a thing an experience an environment but Abbey seems determined that only certain sorts should be

    Desert Solitaire PDF EPUB ç Paperback desert free, solitaire download, Desert Solitaire PDFEPUBAny discussion of the great Southwest regional writer Edward Abbey invariably turns to the fact that he was a pompous self centered hypocritical womanizer And those were his good ualities just kidding Michelle He advocated birth control and railed against immigrants having children yet fathered five children himself he fought against modern intrusion in the wilderness yet had no problem throwing beer cans out of his car window He hated ranchers and farmers yet was a staunch supporter of the National Rifle Association he hated tourists yet

    Desert Solitaire PDF EPUB ç Paperback desert free, solitaire download, Desert Solitaire PDFEPUBAnyone who thinks about nature will find things to love and despise about Desert Solitaire One moment he's waxing on about the beauty of the cliffrose or the injustice of Navajo disenfranchisement and the next he's throwing rocks at bunnies and recommending that all dogs be ground up for coyote food He says the personification of the natural is exactly the tendency I wish to suppress in myself p 6 and then proceeds to personify every rock bird bush and mountain He's loving salty petulant awed enraptured cantankerous ponderous erudite bigoted and just way too inconsistent to figure out what he's really trying to sayWhich clearly is the wrong uestion all together This book is about the desert and it is about Abbey and I don't think judging either of them is a particularly fruitful line of inuiry Instead think of Abbey as the naturalist's Id the unfiltered conservationist urge and the desert as the distilled un human w

    Desert Solitaire PDF EPUB ç Paperback desert free, solitaire download, Desert Solitaire PDFEPUBThis is one of the few books I don't own that I really really really wish I did I love this book It makes me want to pack up my Jeep and head out for Moab I love Abbey's descriptions of the desert the rivers and the communion with solitude that he learns to love over the course two years as a ranger at Arches National ParkAbbey explores environmentalism and government policies on the national parks It wasn't my favorite part of the book but he manages to do it in such a way that it's not too invasive What makes this book really work for me is the sheer love that Abbey has for Arches and Canyonlands and the way in which he manages to make me believe I'm right there on the red rock with him It's the literary euivalent of Ansel AdamsOh and I love how he throws beer cans out his truck window as he's medita

    Desert Solitaire PDF EPUB ç Paperback desert free, solitaire download, Desert Solitaire PDFEPUBAlmost all my friends who have read this book have given it five stars but not written reviews Hey friends pokeI feel like this book has been recommended to me numerous times enough to compel me to buy it one day from where it has festered unread in my Kindle library for at least a year But the universe was commanding me to read it three mentions in 2015 so I buckled down to read it My only wish is that I had been reading it IN Utah so I could have seen some of the places mentioned in person rather than in my endless image searching on the internetOf course Edward Abbey warns that the places he describes won't exist once the reader encounters them in the book because the desert is destined for gross commercialization and some of the land will l

    Desert Solitaire PDF EPUB ç Paperback desert free, solitaire download, Desert Solitaire PDFEPUBThe only problem with waiting so long to read a seminal work by a seminal author is that you have the idea in your head who they will be This I kept thinking This is the controversial Edward Abbey This is what’s considered polemic What this good hud common senseMore funny than it has a right to be More alive Also what Abbey held up himself as his standard interesting original important and true A deep respect for our wilderness— and importantly our wildness— and a deep offense taken at the myriad thr
