Boston, MA: Little, Brown and Company, 1990. First Edition. Hardcover. "In Edward Abbey's critically acclaimed bestseller, The Monkey Wrench Gang, George Washington Hayduke- ex-Green Beret and "wilderness avenger, industrial development saboteur, night-time troublemaker, barroom brawler, free-time lover"- was last seen clinging to a cliff, under fire from both a helicopter and a posse. Now presumed dead by all who stalked him, whereabouts unknown to those who knew him best...HAYDUKE LIVES!- and he does it with the same fiery vengeance and inspired scheming that made him the hero of eco-warriors everywhere." (from front flap) The last work of Edward Abbey (1927-1989), the great American author-anarchist who we perceive as an explosive cross between Henry David Thoreau & Hunter S. Thompson. Published posthumously, this is a sequel to Abbey's most popular novel, The Monkey Wrench Gang, which along with this & other of his fictional & nonfictional works has been cited as an inspiration to Gonzo-level environmental activists the world over. Hardcover in unclipped dust jacket, first edition as stated on copyright page, first printing as indicated by number sequence thereon. An exciting, roller-coaster follow-up to the novel that literally ended with its Badass protagonist in the proverbial cliffhanger as quoted above; a fun & worthy Abbey collectible. Book in very fine condition with only a touch of wear to edges & corners of front, back covers & spine; sparse spotting to side & lower edges of text block; moderate spotting to upper edge of same. Interior very fine, virtually mint. Dust jacket very fine with only a bit of rubbing, occasional spotting & a few short, faint scratches to front, back covers & spine; a few tiny bumps, creases at edges & corners of same & flaps; slight browning & light spotting to thin upper edges & corners of flaps; some spotting to blank inner jacket, hardly visible at outer surface except as noted above. Very Fine / Very Fine. [Item #4514]
