New York. McGraw-Hill, 1968. Hardcover. First edition, first printing. A near fine book in a close to near fine dust jacket. Stated first edition. A bit of foxing to the page edges. Small bookstore label on the front pastedown. Minor wear to the head and foot of the jacket and small pen mark on front free endpaper. Still, a handsome and collectible copy. One of Abbeys' most enduring books that details his love for the desert and canyons. 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.
