Riprap and Cold Mountain Poems

Written by Gary Snyder

This is the 50th Anniversary Edition of Gary Snyder's initial masterwork, written in 1958.  The Riprap poems are deep, absorbing, thought provoking and and ecological. They deal more directly with Snyder's experiences of nature. "Cold Mountain Poems" are Snyder's translation of the poems of Han-Shan, a Chinese Buddhist hermit-poet who lived from about A. D. 700-780.  Snyder concludes his introduction of Han-Shan thus:  "I hold to the principle of the Buddha-mind.  It is fortunate to meet with men of Tao, so I have made this eulogy.
