NORTHFIELD, Vt. — Norwich University Professor of English Sean Prentiss’ book, “Finding Abbey” has won the National Outdoor Book Award in the history/biography category.

“Finding Abbey” is part-memoir, part-biography and centers on a two-year search for environmental writer Edward Abbey’s hidden desert grave.

“It’s a unique and clever approach to a biographical work,” National Outdoor Book Awards Chairman Ron Watters said. “Prentiss, in his attempt to find the grave, travels from Edward Abbey’s birthplace in Pennsylvania to the empty spaces of the desert Southwest.  Along the way, we learn about Abbey — and Prentiss.”

In response to winning the award, Prentiss said: “The most exciting thing for me is the whole book is about Edward Abbey, who he was and his ideas, and to win the award is great because I think Abbey’s voice needs to still be out there today as both a writer and as an environmentalist.

“So, hopefully this award keeps bringing recognition to Abbey and allows us to keep considering his beauty on the page but also his powerful ideas especially in these changing environmental times.”
