The three sequences in this book- Logging, Hunting, Burning- reflect the remarkable cohesiveness in Snyder's writings over the years, and his exploration of Buddhist and Amerindian lore and other interconnections East and West, as well as the primeval devotion to the land and work. From the library of poet Paul McGlynn, with his purchase receipt and related correspondence laid in.
