Bought this on kindle but the text appears like a really really faint photocopy and changing settings doesn't change this. It's basically unreadable in this format which is a shame as he's a great poet.

Happy to sit among these cliffs... 4 Sept. 2013
By MarthaB - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This small book - Gary Snyder's translation of "Cold Mountain Poems" and Michael McPherson's design and calligraphy, together with woodcut illustrations from the Mustard Seed Garden Manual of Painting - offers something unique and lovely for the eye and for the soul. It is such a gift for today, where life is presented in speed-of-light impulse and fractured moments.

"Go ahead and let the world change - I''m happy to sit among these cliffs." And so I'm happy to sit with this book, and slowly move from page to page, immersed in the contemporary, ancient, and ageless. Each poem has its complement in the woodblock illustration on the facing page. Peaceful. Insightful. Wise. Wonderful.

and I love him dearly 31 July 2014
By Marc A Wilson - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Gary Snyder is a magnificent poet, and I love him dearly. But Blofeld and Red Pine's collection of Cold Mountain poems is about 300 pages long with 3 poems on the right side of each pair of pages and the chinese on the facing page. Gary Snyder's book is only 24 poems. That's it -- at least in my Kindle edition. i was disappointed.
