really liked it
Read in February, 2012

This was one of of those situations where a book and/or author keeps getting referenced in other works I am enjoying. I figured it was high time I took a look at Edward Abbey's famous (or infamous?) book.

The story is essentially about a group of eco-terrorists who are sick of seeing the beautiful desert southwest destroyed, and who decide to do something about it. The book has been criticized as being a handbook for eco-terrorism, but I found the book to be inspiring and it challenged some of the ways I thought about the environment and what we can do to help protect it.
