New York: Dial Press, 1962. Hardcover. First edition. A fine book in a very good plus dust jacket. Light rubbing to the jacket spine, short closed tear at the top of the front panel and light soiling to the rear panel. Definitely a collectible copy of Abbey's third novel about a rancher who is being forced from his New Mexico land to make way for an Air Force bombing range. Abbey introduces the book this way: "The story which follows was inspired by an event which took place in our country not many years ago. However, it is a work of fiction and any resemblance to living persons or actual places is accidental."
