Advance Reading Copy of the first edition of
Edward Abbey's The Monkey Wrench Gang
|"The heron in
the canyon, a bighorn ram on the cliff above, one lean coyote on the rim
across the river hear the sound of a howl, the song of a wolf, rise in
the twilight stillness and spread through the emptiness of the desert
evening. One long and prolonged, deep and dangerous, wild archaic howl,
rising and rising and rising on the quiet air."
|ABBEY, Edward. The
Monkey Wrench Gang. Philadelphia: Lippincott, 1975. Octavo, original
yellow wrappers. $425.
Advance reading copy of the first edition of Edward Abbey's
environmental classic. "Abbey's novel The Monkey Wrench Gang
(1975) recounts the exploits of a band of guerrilla environmentalists;
both it and Desert Solitaire
became handbooks of the environmental movement" (Britannica).
Minor soiling, very slight fading to spine; an excellent copy.
