The 1983 Western Wilderness Calendar
(Salt Lake City), (Dream Garden), (1982). The second of the Wilderness calendars, with text by Abbey, Tom McGuane, Leslie Marmon Silko, Ann Zwinger, Lawrence Clark Powell, Wallace Stegner, Barry Lopez, Frank Waters, William Eastlake, John Nichols, and others, as well as work by a number of prominent photographers. Each day is annotated with a quote, a birthday, or an anniversary of a notable event, most pertaining to the West and its history and natural history. A virtual Who's Who of writers and photographers of the West, a number of them, including Abbey, having since passed away. This copy has been signed by Abbey (on the page of the month of May) and Powell, and by photographers John Telford, Tom Till, and Chris Wangsgard. Uncommon signed by Abbey, whose work inspired the series of calendars: copyright violators are warned that they will face "the wrath of the Monkey Wrench Gang," Abbey's famous fictional group of eco-activists. Near fine. [#031785] SOLD
