Thirty-one years have passed since Ed Abbey’s fierce, funny, and often ribald voice stopped telling stories about the American Southwest, stories that skewered and afflicted the powerful and comfortable and inspired generations of activists to rise up in defense of Mother Earth.

Wrenched from the Land features sixteen interviews edited from the ML Lincoln’s film Wrenched with some of the most iconic eco-warriors to put themselves on the line for their beliefs. The activists featured in this book are inspired by the late Edward Abbey, one of America's uncompromising and irascible defenders of wilderness. The book includes interviews with Terry Tempest Williams, the late Charles Bowden, Sea Shepherd Society founder Paul Watson, Jack Loeffler, Doug Peacock, Ingrid Eisenstadter, John De Puy, Bob Lippman, Derrick Jensen, Shonto Begay, Ken Sanders, Ken Sleight, the late Katie Lee, Executive Director of the Center for Biological Diversity Kieran Suckling, Earth First! cofounder Dave Foreman, and climate activist Tim DeChristopher

Jack Loeffler and Dave Foreman will be in conversation with the author for this event.

"I inhaled [this book] in the course of a day, and then went back to reread many of the interviews..." --- Bill McKibben, author, educator, environmentalist, and Co-founder of 350.org
