Summary
Archetypal wild man Edward Abbey and proper, dedicated Wallace Stegner left their footprints all over the western landscape. Gessner follows the ghosts of these two remarkable writer-environmentalists--from Stegner's birthplace in Saskatchewan to the site of Abbey's pilgrimages to Arches--braiding their stories and asking how they speak to the lives of all those who care about the West. What is the future of a region beset by droughts and fires, by fracking and drilling? What should be done about an ever-increasing population that seems to be in the process of loving the West to death? How might two environmental thinkers with radically different personalities--a competent, mature advocate (Stegner) and a monkey-wrenching anarchist (Abbey)--have responded to the crisis?
Summary
Retraces footsteps of two American writers who personified the Wild West, visiting their birthplaces and the sites they wrote about and discusses the future of the region, now plagued by droughts, fires, fracking, and drilling
