Happy Birthday Edward Abbey

EDWARD ABBEY’s classic work of non-fiction is Desert Solitaire, a beautifully realistic account of his time as a park warden in the American Southwest published in 1968. His inspiring 1975 novel The Monkey Wrench Gang created many young anarchists. The curmudgeonly Abbey was born today in 1927.  Ed said, “Grown men do not need leaders.” and “Our ‘neoconservatives’ are neither new nor conservative, but old as Babylon and evil as Hell.” and “May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view. May your mountains rise into and above the clouds.”  As you can see by the picture, Ed and I share the same opinion about television. Not dead/Dead since March 14, 1989
