"Society is like a stew. If you don't stir it up every once in a while then a layer of scum floats to the top." -- Edward Abbey
Edward Paul Abbey (January 29, 1927 — March 14, 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 radical environmental groups, and the non-fiction work Desert Solitaire. Writer Larry McMurtry referred to Abbey as the "Thoreau of the American West".
