Beware of "Abridged" Version

by jwallphoto on Sep 13, 2007

I bought the book after re-reading "Desert Solitaire" because Abbey mentions a photo in Porter's book that I was eager to see. I checked Amazon and found the price fairly high, then came to Alibris and found a much lower price. I suspect the reason is that the lower price is for the "abridged" version. The photo reproduction is poor in the copy of the abridged version I got. You really have to use your imagination to understand why Porter's book is so acclaimed. Despite its glossy paper, it takes a distant second place to the photo reproduction in even a print-on-demand, do-it-yourself Lulu book. Ironically, the photo Abbey mentioned is not even in the abridged version, so buying it was, for me, a nearly total loss.
