♥ Book Title : The Monkey Wrench Gang
☯ Full Synopsis : "A motley crew of saboteurs wreak outrageous havoc on the corporations destroying America’s Western wilderness in this classic, comic extravaganza. When George Washington Hayduke III returns home from war in the jungles of Southeast Asia, he finds the unspoiled West he once knew has been transformed. The pristine lands and waterways are being strip mined, dammed up, and paved over by greedy government hacks and their corrupt corporate coconspirators. And the manic, beer-guzzling, rabidly antisocial ex-Green Beret isn’t just getting mad. Hayduke plans to get even. Together with a radical feminist from the Bronx; a wealthy, billboard-torching libertarian MD; and a disgraced Mormon polygamist, Hayduke’s ready to stick it to the Man in the most creative ways imaginable. By the time they’re done, there won’t be a bridge left standing, a dam unblown, or a bulldozer unmolested from Arizona to Utah. Edward Abbey’s most popular novel, The Monkey Wrench Gang is an outrageous romp with ultra-serious undertones that is as relevant today as it was in the early days of the environmental movement. The author who Larry McMurtry (Lonesome Dove) once dubbed “The Thoreau of the American West” has written a true comedic classic with brains, heart, and soul that more than justifies the call from the Los Angeles Times Book Review that we should all “praise the earth for Edward Abbey!”"Article| Edward Abbey| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : The Brave Cowboy
☯ Full Synopsis : "A cowboy takes on the forces of twentieth century tyranny in a tale by “the Thoreau of the American West” that became the classic film Lonely Are the Brave (Larry McMurtry, Pulitzer Prize–winning author of Lonesome Dove). A rugged individualist and sometime ranch hand, Jack Burns has no love for the modern world. He is a man out of time, riding his horse through a Southwestern landscape corrupted by concrete, shopping centers, and superhighways. A stubborn loner, he lives by a personal moral code that often sets him at odds with contemporary society. And he wouldn’t have it any other way. When Jack’s brazen attempt to free a jailed friend fails, the “anarchist cowboy” becomes an outlaw overnight. Suddenly he and his chestnut mare are racing toward the New Mexican high country with the state police, the military, and the FBI in hot pursuit. His private war against authority has reached a dangerous new level. But if the powerful forces aligning against him think that Jack is going to go quietly, they’ve got another think coming. The Houston Chronicle called Edward Abbey “a fresh breath from the farther reaches and canyons of the diminishing frontier.” The bestselling author of The Monkey Wrench Gang delivers a stirring tribute to individualism and the vanishing American hero. Brought to the big screen in 1962 as Lonely Are the Brave—a major motion picture starring Kirk Douglas and Walter Matthau—The Brave Cowboy is a moving and thought-provoking fable of the modern American West."Article| Edward Abbey| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Die Monkey Wrench Gang
☯ Full Synopsis : ""Seit der Veröffentlichung von The Monkey Wrench Gang im Jahr 1975 ist Mr. Abbey ein Held des Underground", schrieb die New York Times. Und das ist nur allzu verständlich. Denn auch jeder, der Abbeys' schräge Heldengeschichte heute liest, wird insgeheim den Wunsch verspüren, der guten Sache wegen irgendetwas in die Luft jagen zu wollen. Ganz so wie Bonnie Abbzug, Seldom Seen Smith, Doc Sarvis und George Washington Hayduke es tun: Abbeys' sympathische Saboteure, die mit Unmengen Dynamit und viel Leidenschaft die Projekte derer in Schutt und Asche legen, die die Natur im grossen Stil ausbeuten und zerstören. Dass Robert Crumb dieses Buch illustriert hat, ist ein Glücksfall. Seine Bilder machen aus einer sehr guten Geschichte ein Meisterwerk und - man darf es wohl sagen - ein Kultbuch - das sich niemand entgehen lassen sollte."Article| Edward Abbey| Statement ..."
