Reading / Film List 2

This page was created to include those books I think are worth reading which do not fall under the the topic of the previous list. Most are environmental in nature, both fiction and nonfiction. This list is much shorter than the other one but these books are treasures. In case you can't tell I am a serious Abbey fan.

Abbey, Edward Abbey's Road

Abbey, Edward Black Sun

Abbey, Edward Fool's Progress

Abbey, Edward Desert Images

Abbey, Edward Desert Solitaire: A Season in the Wilderness
     This is my favorite of all time which I often reread. If you love the desert, this is a must read.

Abbey, Edward Hayduke Lives!

Abbey, Edward The Monkey Wrench Gang
     This one I learned about on a trip to Sun Valley, Idaho, thank that person for turning me on to Edward Abbey

Blair, Robert Tales of the Superstitions: The Origins of the Lost Dutchman Legend

Brady, John Atomic Ghost: Poets Respond to the Nuclear Age

Jennings, Gary The Treasure of the Superstitions

Farella, John The Wind in the Jar

Williams, Terry Tempest Refuge: An Unnatural History of Family and Place

Williams, Terry Tempest Pieces of White Shell: A Journey into Navajoland
     This one is fast becoming my third favorite right behind Abbey's Desert Solitaire and Hogan's Dwellings: A
     Spiritual History of the Living World

Just as the blurb on the back of the book says, "Thank God, Kurt Vonnegut has broken his promise," by writing another book — this is vintage Vonnegut, difficult to put down, full of many of the same themes of his novels in particular what we are doing to this planet — A Man Without a Country

Zakin, Susan Coyotes and Town Dogs: Earth First! and the Environmental Movement
