Desert Solitaire – memorable experiences with the wilderness

Desert SolitaireI finished Desert Solitaire by Edward Abbey with beautifully written scenic imagery. This book is about the author himself, Edward Abbey during the time he was a ranger in Arches National Park.

This book itself gave such a sense of comfort the entire way through, the independence and closeness to nature that Abbey experiences and describes places the reader in his feet. I really enjoyed this book– the writing and simplicity makes it easy. The symbolism throughout the book gives it depth and dimension. Abbey also describes different memorable experiences with the wilderness which is quite captivating and a freshness to it that keeps you reading. As a result I do recommend this book, it provides something that not a lot of modern books include.
