“Prentiss reveals the power of Ed Abbey’s lasting call to action, not just as a Monkey Wrencher, but also as an ethicist who lives by Ed’s own motto, ‘Follow the truth no matter where it leads.’”—Jack Loeffler, author of Adventures with Ed: A Portrait of Abbey
“An engaging, well-researched account of the private schools that proliferated in the interwar years in the American Southwest. Bingmann does an excellent job of situating these schools in the context of the history of American education."—Lynn Dumenil, author of The Modern Temper: American Culture and Society in the 1920s
In this enthralling memoir we follow Evans and Peckinpah through conversations in bars, family gatherings, binges on drugs and alcohol, struggles with film producers and executives, and Peckinpah’s abusive behavior—sometimes directed at Evans himself.
Touching on the Middle East, Europe, Mexico, and South America before circling back to New Mexico, Arellano makes a case for preserving the acequia irrigation system and calls for a future that respects the ecological limitations of the land.
