Hi. I have to pick a book by Edward Abbey to read. Then I have to write a paper that covers:

-what Ed was trying to accomplish with this piece
-whether or not he accomplished his goal
-what you think about his goals (good, bad????)

I was wondering if anyone has any good suggestions of books of his that are easy to understand and would be good to answer these questions with. I was thinking about reading the Monkey Wrench Gang.


I've never read any of this writer's works, but you can read summaries and reviews of them at Amazon or other bookseller websites:
http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_ss_gw/002-0145988-6292068?url=search-alias%3Dstripbooks&field-keywords=Edward+Abbey&Go.x=11&Go.y=9

Just click on the image of the book's cover and then scroll down to find the summaries and reviews. These may help you decide.

=)
