Few environmental activists are as venerated as Ed Abbey, author of The Monkey Wrench Gang and Desert Solitaire. His stories about the landscapes, wildlife, and people of the Southwest have inspired countless numbers of visitors to explore the region’s national parks, monuments, and wild places – ironically, one of his biggest fears. But now, as Desert Solitaire turns 50 years old, local writer and sixth-generation Utahn, Amy Irvine, takes issue with some of Abbey’s views in a new book from Torrey House Press.

It happens every day – in a hospital, in a car, at home – babies are born. Almost 4 million babies were born in 2016 in the U.S., that’s nearly 11,000 babies a day. 

Especially after a first baby, the homes of many new moms are packed with people, presents and casserole pans from well-meaning neighbors. But, when the excitement fades, and the inevitable exhaustion sets in, where do moms go for support?
