Summary
First published in 1968, this account of two summers spent in southeastern Utah's canyonlands is a classic exemplar of American nature writing. The author recounts his stint as a park ranger at Arches National Monument, his love for the natural beauty that surrounded him, and his distaste for the modernizing improvements designed to increase visitation to the park
