Beyond the Wall (1984)
Subtitled Essays from the Outside, this is a collection of essays about hiking deserts and floating rivers.
The book contains the essay A walk in the desert hills, which those who are interested in the mechanics of literature can compare with the rough notes Ed made in his journal during the trip, published in Confessions of a Barbarian. It gives an informative and entertaining lesson in Abbey's note-to-essay method.
