Signed, Edward Abbey, Tucson, 10 Oct, '88. 485 pages. Russell Martin in the New York Review of Books: "A kind of outrageous comedy is central to the thematic body of Abbey's work--a Freewheeling willingness to be brash, satiric, excessive. His is a kind of gallows humor poised against the mechanized diminishments of the human spirit." Abbey considered this his best novel. A fine bright copy bound in 1/4dark blue over gold paper covered boards spine lettering gilt, in a fine unclipped pictorial dust jacket.
