Synopsis
This collection is made up of four sections: "Far West" - poems of the Western mountain country where, as a young man, the author worked as a logger and forest ranger; "Far East" - poems written between 1956 and 1964 in Japan where he studied Zen at the monastery in Kyoto; "Kali" - poems inspired by a visit to India and his reading of Indian religious texts, particularly those of Shaivism and Tibetan Buddhism; and "Back" - poems done on his return to this the U.S. in 1964 which look again at our West with the eyes of India and Japan. The book concludes with a group of translations of the Japanese poet Miyazawa Kenji (1896-1933).
