A Fine tight copy in gray cloth covered boards without the dust jacket. A phrase from the poet Walt Whitman, "Resist much, obey little", summarizes much in the life of Edward Abbey. A man of many faces and many opinions, he was nearly impossible to "get a fix on". In this volume his friends and contemporaries assemble their own literary responses to the mercurial Abbey, revealing (perhaps inadvertently) a good deal about themselves in the process. Stalwart and opiniated as he was, Abbey's quicksilver mind was just as likely to leave readers gazing blankly at a handful of enigmatic shards. Now the writer is gone, but the intrigue lives on.T his collection of essays on Abbey features assessments by such literary luminaries as Wendell Berry, William Eastlake, Barry Lopez, Richard Shelton, Diane Wakoski, Sam Hamill and Gary Snyder.
