The Monkey Wrench Gang - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Ex-Green Beret George Hayduke has returned from war to find his beloved southwestern desert threatened by industrial development. Joining with Bronx exile and feminist saboteur Bonnie Abzug, wilderness guide and outcast Mormon Seldom Seen Smith, and libertarian billboard torcher Doc Sarvis, M.D., Hayduke is ready to fight the power--taking on the strip miners, clear-cutters, and the highway, dam, and bridge builders who are threatening the natural habitat. The Monkey Wrench Gang is on the move--and peaceful coexistence be damned

Edward Abby used third person point of view in the story to give the reader very in-depth detail about each one of the characters. This point of view also shows the reader what each of the characters is doing when they were not together. When the Monkey Wrench Gang is not together, Edward Abby doesn¿t just talk about one person. He switches back and forth between the characters. He talks about one character and what they plan to do and then at the height of the action he switches to another character. By doing this he keeps the reader on the edge of his seat. Edward Abby does this repeatedly throughout the story.

The Monkey Wrench Gang Summary & Study Guide

Edward Abbey spent most of his life in the American Southwest. He was the author of numerous works of fiction and nonfiction, including the celebrated Desert Solitaire, which decried the waste of America’s wilderness, and the novel The Monkey Wrench Gang, the title of which is still in use today to describe groups that purposefully sabotage projects and entities that degrade the environment. Abbey was also one of the country’s foremost defenders of the natural environment. He died in 1989.
