Edward Abbey describes THE JOURNEY HOME as "...partly personal history, one man's odyssey in search of Ithaca. Like so many others in this century I found myself a displaced person shortly after birth and have been looking half of my life for a place to take my stand. Now that I think I've found it, I must defend it. My home is the American West, and this book is written in its defense."

"He offers a portrait of the West that we'll not soon forget. He gives us the observations of a man who left the urban world to think about the natural world and the myths buried therein." (Publisher's Source)
