The book is not all instructional jammed with details you'll forget as soon as you put it down. Instead, there are essays of true-to-life experiences, hikes and walks into desert country. Pictures and drawings are clear and large. On our recent trip to New Mexico, we took the book along and it was fun to refer to it from time to time.
Published by Time-life and so, obviously, a work for hire, this volume still conveys all of Abbey's love of and reverence for his beloved Southwest, while not being quite as over-the-top Luddite as many of his other works. Combine this with photography that's up to the high standards of most Time-Life "coffee table" series, and you've got a winner.
(Collectors take note: first editions are identifiable by a small hourglass shape on the bottom right corner of the last page of the index. Also - the dust jacket for this book is pretty rare. Consider yourself lucky if you have one!)
