Summary
The Fool's Progress, the 'fat masterpiece' as Edward Abbey labeled it, is his most important piece of writing: it reveals the complete Ed Abbey, from the green grass of his memory as a child in Appalachia to his approaching death in Tuscon at age sixty-two.

When his third wife abandons him in Tucson, boozing, misanthropic anarchist Henry Holyoak Lightcap shoots his refrigerator and sets off in a battered pick-up truck for his ancestral home in West Virginia. Accompanied only by his dying dog and his memories, the irascible warhorse (a stand-in for the 'real' Abbey) begins a bizarre cross-country odyssey-determined to make peace with his past-and to wage one last war against the ravages of 'progress.'
