One of my favorites! I recommend reading two other Abbey books:
The Fool’s Progress - a disheartened man journeys (overlands?) across the US with a dying dog to his Appalachian childhood home. Along the way, he reflects on his life.
The Brave Cowboy - a stubborn cowboy (4-legged overlanding) becomes an outlaw and rebels against the modern “civilized” world.

“Cactus Ed” was quite a character, and he had some great adventures. In his book Abbey’s Road, (I think) is a story of him driving a rental car across the Australian Outback. A great read!

The Brave Cowboy was made into a movie and I think it was Kirk Douglas starred in it. The title was Lonely are the brave and it was filmed in New Mexico. Just some trivia from the trail!
