Publisher's Summary

A half-century after its original publication, Edward Abbey's classic 1962 novel, Fire on the Mountain, still retains its beauty, power, and relevance. This extraordinary tale by the legendary icon of the environmentalism movement and author of The Monkey Wrench Gang proudly celebrates rugged American individualism, as it tells the story of one tough old loner's stand against the combined, well-armed forces of government that are determined to clear him from his land.

Excellent story and well-told!

Edward Abby is a much better writer than I expected. I could feel every sentiment, see every landscape, and smell every smell he described. It was a great story that kept one on the edge of their seat.
