Meet Ed Abbey - author of more than 20 books over a 40-year career - river runner, desert explorer, satirist of “progress.” His writing was his passion, fueled by anger and love over the vanishing American wilderness. Rich in humor and fierce in outrage, Abbey helped to teach and inspire millions. The film Wrenched brings his story to light.
