First came across him in Keroauc's Dharma Bums and was intrigued by the character. In Dharma Bums he is called japher Ryder. I was fortunate to pick up a couple of his poetry books in the late'70's in Berkely - was even offered the opportunity to meet him as he was in the bookshop - as he was browsing ( & I too shy) I to my regret said no. One of the great unsung 20th century thinkers. I urge everyone to read Snyder

A desert island book. A poet's eye on ecology, that sees where humans might sit in the great scheme...

5.0 out of 5 stars The Wisdom of the Wild 29 April 2017
By Dave Bradley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Snyder calls these essays a "meditation on what is is to be human." He emphasizes what is too often overlooked, our biological, animal and natural selves, that connect us to the rest of the world. For him, we are still, in our innermost selves, wild, in the good sense. And the "etiquette of freedom" and "the etiquette of the wild" he describes, if we follow them, will lead to our own inner freedom, our own deep connection to things as they really are. With a poet's rather than a preacher's touch, he invites the reader to a way of life connected to our ancestors and to the natural world around us. A book of deep wisdom, it may not transform the world in our lifetimes, but it can transform anyone who reads it with an open heart and mind. I for one plan to absorb the practice of the wild for the rest of my life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic 12 April 2017
By Rian Satterwhite - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
An absolutely stunning read that has aged extremely well. Snyder's words ring true and are artfully written... I often reread and savored passages. It issues a challenge to critically reexamine the ways in which we see ourselves in nature. This will be a book I continually return to.

5.0 out of 5 stars Important ideas, well developed 19 Dec. 2016
By Donald Meeker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I think a most important work, well written. The concepts and ideas are well thought through and expressed. It left me with a heightened awareness of where we are and where we came from, opening the mind to the possibilities open to the human community.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very inspiring book 31 July 2012
By Jaime Axel Ruiz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The Practice of the Wild has been for me a revelation. It is not just a book about environment but a collection of texts and thoughts, including useful historical references about Nature , that enlarge our comprehension of the way we deal with the world. It helps us to behave in life, in our relations with other people, with plants, with animals. But it is not a book of self-help. It is poetry and inspiration, knowledge and conscience.
Snyder does not pretend to give us a formula, to impose a theory or a corpus of doctrine, he just shares his thoughts and experiences, and it is very well written.
I marked many pages with post-it because it is a book worth to be read again.
