  1. Ed Abbey seemed to be a very passionate man when it came to philosophy im guessing thats why he went on to get his masters degree in that field. I learned that he taught non- fiction and and his best work in the catregory was the desert solitaire. Abbey was best known for his novel “The Monkey Wrench Gang” concerning the protest and sabotage on the environmet. Since Indiana is such a small town and just this area in general its kind of amazing to see people become these highly influencing legendary icons. I saw that Abbey was born in Indiana, PA and last visited I.U.P in 1983 then six years later he was laid to rest.
