This richly rewarding book about ecology and technology draws on 40 years of careful thought. Although it does not dwell on information technologies, the points Snyder makes about "a feeling of place" are of interest to anyone who has mulled over the ways in which cyberspace jogs our normative notions of time, space, and community.From Booklist:
Whether he's writing poetry or prose, Snyder is direct and plainspoken, exuding the sort of authority earned by sustained contemplation and honest work. This collection of mind-stirring essays covers four decades and includes 13 pieces written since the publication of Snyder's last volume of essays, The Practice of the Wild (1990), as well as his still relevant and galvanizing 1969 Earth Day manifesto, Four Changes, which appears with a forceful postscript. Snyder analyzes our troubled relationship with the earth from a fertile triumvirate of perspectives: that of a Buddhist, an environmentalist, and a poet. He discusses how the effort to live by the First Precept of Buddhism, to "cause no unnecessary harm," is, like every other aspect of life, complicated by the complexities of the machine age, then encourages us to expand our conception of community to include all life-forms. Snyder also articulates the connection between meditation, mythology, songs, and poetry in "A Single Breath," an exceptional essay on language and creativity. This bracingly pragmatic and unerringly spiritual volume reaffirms Snyder's prominent place in American literature and discourse. Donna Seaman
