Edward Paul Abbey (1927 - 1989) was an American author and essayist noted for his advocacy of environmental issues and criticism of public land policies. His best-known works include the novel The Monkey Wrench Gang, which has been cited as an inspiration by environmentalists and groups defending nature by various means, also called eco-warriors, his novel Hayduke Lives, and his essay collections One Life at a Time, Please (1988) and Down the River (with Henry Thoreau & Other Friends) (1982). His prophecies of a looming totalitarian state and the role of wilderness as a safe refuge for dissenters is relevant more than ever given the current developments in the American socio-political sphere.
