The grave of Western writer and environmentalist Edward Abbey is said to be “where no one would find it,” but author Sean Prentiss tried. Prentiss’s Colorado cabin served as his base for this quest. He chronicles the journey and conversations with some of Abbey’s closest friends in his book “Finding Abbey,” which was nominated for a Colorado Book Award this year.
