This remarkable collection was greeted with broad praise, and as Julia Martin proclaimed, "Moving between relative and absolute ways of seeing, [Snyder] responds to the experience of global conflict and personal pain by reminding readers of the continuity of wildness, affirming the value of art, and invoking an ancient practice of wisdom and compassion."

Gary Snyder in a Lifetime, Unforgettable
To hear Gary Snyder read his own work is like nothing else. I’ve been reading him since I was a small child, then listening to his kitchen conversation with my father— and still, to hear him read his books, out loud, takes my breath away.
Snyder is Coyote here, telling tales. Recorded in his home in the Sierras, you can feel every critter, leaf, puff of smoke.
What can I say about a writer who so summons, truly evokes the winds in trees and soaring peaks. In these works, nature and beauty overlap modern inconvenience, the roar of the freeway, and you get the essence of *experience.*
Bridging 1945 - 2004, there is a lifetime in these lyrics more clearly stated volumes of memoirs. Thank you, Gary!
