Fire on the Mountain
Edward Abbey with introduction by James Brinkley

This fiftieth anniversary edition, with a new introduction by Douglas Brinkley, reminds readers of Abbey's powerful conviction that "a patriot must always be ready to defend his country against his government."
Edward Abbey was a hero to environmentalists and rebels of every stripe. With Fire on the Mountain, this literary giant to the New West gave readers a powerful, moving and enduring tale that gloriously celebrates the undying spirit of the American individualism.

John Vogelin's land is his life---a barren stretch of New Mexican wilderness mercifully bypassed by civilization. Then the government moves in, and suddenly the elderly, stubborn rancher is confronting the combined land-grabbing green of the County Sheriff, the Department of the Interior, the Atomic Energy Commission and the U.S. Air Force, but the tough old guy is like a mountain lion. When backed into a corner, he came out fighting.
