Gary Snyder is widely regarded as a member of the Beat Generation circle of writers: he was one of the poets that read at the famous Six Gallery event, and was written about in one of Kerouac's most popular novels, The Dharma Bums.

I recently reread this collection of essays from Gary Snyder and reaffirmed my view that of all the nature writers out there, Snyder remains among our most lucid and insightful philosophers and, most importantly, practitioners of wilderness thought. I would describe the essays in this collection as "thick and rich," thoughtfully crafted from decades of experience, confidently and clearly asserted, and skillfully argued by a scholar of the world. Snyder is conveying knowledge gained through direct experience. As such the essays are small lessons of instruction and guidance for the age-old question "how should I live?" The how, according to Snyder, is accomplished by becoming native to one's place, seeking out what is good, wild, and free, and paying attention to the mystery that pervades all.

I first read words by Gary Snyder as a student more than 20 years ago. "Learn the flowers". In those days I didn't pay much attention to birds, leaves, flowers, animals. But something struck me about those words. And I also read the words: "Myths and texts, burning". For some reason these words made me want to cry. Then I went on with the next 20 years. But those words remained, quietly, surfacing from time to time. Eventually, the words called me in. I was paying attention to flowers, myths, texts, burning. This book of essays shows us how Snyder pays attention to where he is, which is in nature and of nature. Snyder argues that language is biological, made of "nerves and needs" an innate upwelling and pattern, just like the other patterned phenomena of nature. It's not fixed. He uses language beautifully to help us see the nature that we're a part of. Once we've seen it - once we've learned it - we'll want to keep it alive.

Gary Snyder is an American treasure - a great writer and poet whose thoughtful approach to life and literature will enrich the spirit of anyone who reads him. This collection of essays explores the relation between nature and the spirit in a way that might be thought of as part-Beat and part-Thoreau but is, ultimately, very original and thoughtful. The first few essays in the book seemed a bit difficult and inaccessible compared to the last several, which were clear and brilliant.

Snyder's "The Practice of the Wild" is an exciting challenge to all of us to reconnect through myth, song, stories, culture, to the places we live and take for granted. It is accessible, fun, and enlightening. Snyder questions basic assumptions that we have, and examines the idea that listening to the land and its spirits will help us develop a new ethic. "It is appropriate to feel loyalty to a given glacier; it is advisable to investigate the whole water cycle; and it is rare and marvelous to know that glaciers do not always flow and that mountains are always walking." Tying together science, politics, and poetry, Snyder has asked each of us to discover what it is about our self that yearns to be whole, and points out that this wholeness can come through the wild.
