Finding Abbey: Or finding yourself

Author combines personal quest with search for gravesite
Edward Abbey worked as a ranger at Arches National Monument, north of Moab, in the 1960s, before it was designated a national park. His experience there inspired him to write one of his best-known books, Desert Solitaire. Abbey died in 1989. Author Sean Prentiss takes up the search for Abbey’s grave in his new book, Finding Abbey: The Search for Edward Abbey and His Hidden Desert Grave.
