Reseña del editor:

Ornery and unpredictable, "Edward Abbey was an autobiographer, " writes the farmer-poet Wendell Berry, "speaking as and for himself, fighting, literally, for dear life." And this novel, the "fat masterpiece, " as Ed labeled it, was his most important piece of writing: it reveals the complete Ed Abbey, from the green grass of his memory as a child in Appalachia to his approaching death in Tucson at age sixty-two. Funny and ribald, it offers what Larry McMurtry has called Abbey's "fine particularity, " the authority of "a writer who feels a lot and then manages to transcend his own notions of himself."
