Book Signing and Reading with Author David Gessner: All the Wild That Remains: Edward Abbey, Wallace Stegner, and the American West

June 12 -- 7 pm Signing and reading with Author David Gessner at Back of Beyond Books.  This event is free,

Archetypal wild man Edward Abbey and proper, dedicated Wallace Stegner left their footprints all over the western landscape. Now, award-winning nature writer David Gessner follows the ghosts of these two remarkable writer-environmentalists from Stegner's birthplace in Saskatchewan to the site of Abbey's pilgrimages to Arches National Park in Utah, braiding their stories and asking how they speak to the lives of all those who care about the West.

Gessner takes us on an inspiring, entertaining journey as he renews his own commitment to cultivating a meaningful relationship with the wild, confronting American overconsumption, and fighting environmental injustice all while reawakening the thrill of the words of his two great heroes."
