Edward Abbey - Southwest Desert Rat
Poet, philosopher, lover of coffee and the open road, and Desert Rat
Living under his own ideals and seeking freedom fromt he unnecessary burdens of modern culture, Ed Abbey found refuge in one of the harshest and most delicate ecosystems on earth: the deserts of the Southwestern United States. While many view the desert as a place to be bulldozed, manipulated, and built upon, Abbey had the vision to see the desert as a place of beauty and wonder, And he had the strength to push for the preservation of the Southwest.
Through his writing, Abbey has inspired many others to explore and discover the richness and complexity of the Southwest. Abbey realized that without the wilderness, we will find ourselves lost in a concrete, right-angled, meaningless world. Abbey showed us that through our words and actions, we may preserve that which is most precious and important in our lives.
"One final paragraph of advice: Do not burn yourselves out. Be as I am -- a reluctant enthusiast... a part-time crusader, a half-hearted fanatic. Save the other half of yourselves and your lives for pleasure and adventure. It is not enough to fight for the land; it is even more important to enjoy it. While you can. While it's still here. So get out there and hunt and fish and mess around with your friends, ramble out yonder and explore the forests, encounter the grizz, climb the mountains, bag the peaks, run the rivers, breathe deep of that yet sweet and lucid air, sit quietly for awhile and contemplate the precious stillness, that lovely, mysterious and awesome space..."
