All the Wild That Remains
Edward Abbey, Wallace Stegner, and the American WestDownloadable Audiobook - 2015
Archetypal wild man Edward Abbey and proper, dedicated Wallace Stegner left their footprints all over the western landscape. Now, the award-winning nature writer David Gessner follows the ghosts of these two remarkable writer-environmentalists- from Stegner's birthplace in Saskatchewan to the site of Abbey's pilgrimages to Arches- braiding their stories and asking how they speak to the lives of all those who care about the West. What is the future of a region beset by droughts and fires, by fracking and drilling? What should be done about an ever-increasing population that seems to be in the process of loving the West to death? How might two environmental thinkers with radically different personalities- a competent, mature advocate (Stegner) and a monkey-wrenching anarchist (Abbey)- have responded to the crisis?
