Read in February, 2010

If I had to choose between trekking the Himalaya for myself in this lifetime or reading Matthiessen's book, I would choose the book--that is how much I relished this sensitive soul's exquisite perceptions of the psychic emanations of his journey. His complete engagement with the landscape brings it to life for the reader, and I feel that I am navigating the landscape of his spiritual journey as much as the physical--the mountains, villages, flora and fauna he describes so skillfully. The inner and outer worlds beautifully reflected each other, right down to that black spot where the snow leopard went unseen.
