New York. McGraw-Hill, 1968. Hardcover. First edition, first printing. A fine book in a close to fine dust jacket. Light foxing to the top edges. Minor nicks to the foot of the dust jacket spine. A handsome and collectible copy of this iconic book. A 1968 signed holographic letter with six lines of text and signed as "Edward Abbey" is laid into the book. Mailing envelope in Abbey's handwriting is also present. This is one of Abbeys' most enduring books that details his love for the desert and canyons. The book was written after he worked as a ranger in Arches National Park. There was a small first printing and many of the firsts were read and passed around. Consequently, well preserved copies such as this are uncommon.
