Desert Solitaire by Edward Abbey
"Passionately felt, deeply poetic book. It has philosophy. It has humor. It has its share of nerve-tingling adventures...set down in a lean, racing prose, in a close-knit style of power and beauty." - The NYT Book Review
Edward Abbey lived for three seasons in the desert at Moab, Utah, and what he discovered about the land before him, the world around him, and the heart that beat within, is a fascinating, sometimes raucous, always personal account of a place that has already disappeared, but is worth remembering and living through again and again.

Desert Solitaire is one of my favorite desert books. It’s one of the books that pushed me on the path to found Erem—a desert lover speaking to a fellow one across generations. If you too are a desert lover, then this is a book for you.
