About the Book

“The Thoreau of the American West.” — Larry McMurty, author of Lonesome Dove

A half-century after its original publication, Edward Abbey’s classic 1962 novel, Fire on the Mountain, still retains its beauty, power, and relevance. Now with a new introduction by New York Times bestseller Douglas Brinkley (The Wilderness Warrior, Walter Cronkite), this extraordinary tale by the legendary icon of the environmentalism movement and author of The Monkey Wrench Gang proudly celebrates rugged American individualism, as it tells the story of one tough old loner’s stand against the combined, well-armed forces of government that are determined to clear him from his land.

Critical Praise

“The Thoreau of the American West.” — Larry McMurtry, author of Lonesome Dove

“Abbey is a fresh breath from the farther reaches and canyons of the diminishing frontier.” — Houston Chronicle

“One of the very best writers to deal with the American West.” — Washington Post Book World

“Abbey can attain a kind of glory in his writing. He takes scenes that have been well-traveled by other writers, and re-creates them as traditional American myths.” — New York Times Book Review
