Cactus Country by Edward AbbeyCactus Country is part of the American Wilderness series by Time-Life books, when it was sold by subscription in 1973. I have always enjoyed the pictures, and now I take the time to enjoy the text written by Edward Abbey.
I am not a naturalist: what I hope to evoke through words here is the way things feel on stormy desert afternoons, the exact shade of color in shadows on the warm rock, the brightness of October, the rust and silence and echoes of human history along dusty desert roads, the fragrance of burning mesquite, and a few other simple, ordinary, inexplicable things like that.
i recommend this for all readers.
