When we hear Dear Abbey, we think of Edward Abbey. Here Amy writes a provoking reminder of our environmental impact as humans on the few wild places remaining. Read this and think about ways you can combine trips, stay local, reduce consumption and reduce your impact. We challenge you to do that. With your extra time, try to get your hands on a used copy of Desert Solitaire and read it before your next trip into the great wide open.
Author and longtime Public Land’s Activist Amy Irvine’s answer to the classic ‘Desert Solitaire’ on its 50th anniversary.
