Here is the only collection of writings compiled by Abbey himself, who writes in his own words, "to present what I think is both the best and most representative of my writing--so far." Included in this collection are generous selections of his best novels, such as The Brave Cowboy, Black Sun, and his classic The Monkey Wrench Gang, as well as many of his other, more expressive and acerbic essays. To add further interest, Abbey's own sketches are scattered throughout the text. This rich offering of fiction and prose is a testament to a singular American author, and offers an opportunity to become better acquainted with his abundant body of work.

Abbey's writing triumphed over my disagreement with him on co-evolving civilization and nature. I've been trying to follow his footprints invisible in the desert with limited means and gradually firming fortitude. I was in league with him, with little attention to examine every single action we (including Abbey) commit. This collection is (can be an introduction of Abby's complete works in different time period) for ones who love his prose style and appreciate how essential and rare a passionate literary figure like him a society needs.
