Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
This first selected edition of Snyder's poetry offers an overview of a career spanning more than 30 years, from his emergence as a poet of the Beat Generation to his eventual focus on nature and environmentalism. (Sept.)
Library Journal
No nature is "a magnificent selection of the best of Snyder's career" (LJ 9/1/92), still going strong with the recent Mountains and Rivers Without End.
