Two beautifully paired essays, “Tawny Grammar” and “Good, Wild, Sacred,” serve to offer an autobiographical framework for Gary Snyder’s long work as a poet, environmentalist, and a leader of the Buddhist community in North America.
He begins standing outside a community hall in Portland, Oregon, in 1943 and concludes as a homesteader in the backcountry of Northern California more than forty-five years later. A wonderful introduction to Gary Snyder, this will also serve to remind his faithful readers of the thrill of his insights and his commitments crucial to our future on Turtle Island.
