Happy Birthday Edward Abbey! In remembrance of this great lover of the desert and of all things right and true and gonzo, watch this never-broadcast video shot in Arches National Park in 1985. It was shelved because a well-known broadcaster didn’t want an “eco-terrorist” being featured on his show. The film features the inimitable Ed Abbey in all his red convertible, Utah-loving glory. What a delight he was.
Get to know Ed Abbey by reading this 1982 Q & A interview. He’s got opinions on sprawl, water use, and the environment, per usual.
