In the 1950's, Edward Abbot spent three seasons as a park ranger in southeastern Utah. Desert Solitaire is his love letter to the wild country that America has lost. This book is at once a memoir, an adventure story, and a polemic against the destruction of wilderness. Abbot's prose style is beautifully poetic, and his subject matter touches the essence of the American experience. You simply must include this book in your study of American nonfiction.
