Powell's Poet and essayist Snyder, a Pulitzer and National Book Award winner, has been a committed environmentalist and student of East Asian thought for decades. For almost as long, he has lived in the Sierra Nevada, where he saw the changes in attitudes toward preserving forests.
Snyder has been described as the most significant of the former Beat Poets by more than a few scholars. Notably, when his cohort - which includes Alan Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Gregory Corso, and a host of others - went crazy for drugs, alcohol, and hedonism, Snyder went East, becoming an ordained Zen Buddhist monk.
His mentor, Kenneth Rexroth, would be proud.

Formerly Poet Laureate of the State of California, Snyder is on the faculty of the University of California, Davis, and has lived with his family on his farm in the Sierra foothills for a generation. His list of works outstrips all of the former beats put together, so why all the focus on that gang of dead druggies, when we still have Snyder alive and well and with us?
