really liked it
bookshelves: poetry

As a fan of much of Snyder's work, I was surprised by my at times lackluster responses to this landmark book of eco-poetry. Whenever the poems turn spiritually or politcally didactic, which is a little too often, I was underwhelmed.

But take me down a trail or up a mountain with Snyder's observing eye and spirit, and I turn back into a happy, engaged reader.
