Nirgends zu Hause -- und auf dem längsten Trail der Welt Eine junge Wissenschaftlerin, ein angeblicher Halbindianer und ein Drogensüchtiger –für sie alle ist der Appalachian Trail die letzte Chance. Simone muss ihren verweichlichten Freund abschütteln und ihr Bedürfnis, Menschen aus großer Höhe hinabzustoßen. Richard kämpft gegen seine Alkoholsucht. Taz wurde vor kurzem aus dem Gefängnis entlassen. Die drei durchstreifen einzigartige Landschaften, erleben Freundschaft und Liebe, aber auch Neid, Hass und Tod. Und immer wieder stellt sich ihnen die große Frage: Kann der Mensch sich ändern? „Fern von der Zivilisation zu sein, ist eine spirituelle Erfahrung.“ T. J. Forrester „Manchmal lässt T.J. Forrester ‚Die Straße’ von Cormac McCarthys wie halluzinogene Zuckerwatte erscheinen.“ A. M. Homes

This is the only major collection of Abbey’s writings compiled by the author himself: in his own words, “to present what I think is both the best and most representative of my writing—so far.” It serves up a rich feast of fiction and prose by the singular American writer whom Larry McMurtry called “the Thoreau of the American West.” Devoted Abbey fans along with readers just discovering his work will find a mother lode of treasures here: generous chunks of his best novels, including The Brave Cowboy, Black Sun, and his classic The Monkey Wrench Gang; and more than a score of his evocative, passionate, trenchant essays—a genre in which he produced acknowledged masterpieces such as Desert Solitaire. Scattered throughout are the author’s own petroglyph-style sketches. This new edition adds selections from work that appeared shortly before Abbey’s death: a chapter from Hayduke Lives!, the hilarious sequel to The Monkey Wrench Gang; excerpts from his revealing journals; and examples of his poetry. A new foreword by Doug Peacock—Abbey’s close friend and the model for the flamboyant activist Hayduke—offers a fond appreciation of this larger-than-life figure in American letters.
