To speak for the voiceless was his mission. He was a virtuoso of the well-phrased thought in which style and content, symbol and meaning - each imbued with humor - come together to defy the powerful, reminding us always that preservation of wild nature is a key to a free spirit. And along with Emerson and Thoreau, Abbey, the uncompromising stylist, knew that the corruption of language follows the corruption of man. "Language," Abbey wrote, "seeks to transcend itself, 'to grasp the thing that has no name.'"

9 editions published between 1986 and 2003 in English and held by 102 WorldCat member 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
