This is a collection of short travel stories from all over the world.

Cover text

Book coverIn the spirit of Desert Solitaire and The Journey Home, Abbey's Road is a personal odyssey. Edward Abbey's explorations include the familiar territory of the Rio Grande in Texas and Canyonlands National Park and Lake Powell in Utah. He also takes us to such varied places as Scotland, the interior of Australia, and the Sierra Madre and Isla de la Sombra in Mexico.

Reviews

"I've been along a few of Mr. Abbey's roads. He sees much more than I did. Indeed, reading him is often better than being there was." -- John Leonard

"Abbey's the original fly in the ointment. Give him money and prizes. Don't let anything happen to him." -- Thomas McGuane

"Edward Abbey is one of our foremost Western essayist and novelists. A militant conservationist, he has attracted a large following -- not only within the ranks of Sierra Club enthusiasts and dedicated backpackers, but also among armchair appreciators of good writing. What always made his work doubly interesting is the sense of a true maverick spirit at large, within it -- a kind of spirit not imitable, limited only to the highest class of literary outlaws." -- The Denver Post

"Among the things to give thanks for is Edward Abbey." -- Los Angeles Times
