Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:
Gretel Ehrlich's "vivid, tough, and funny" writing (Annie Dillard) has taken her readers to vast Wyoming sheep farms and through the strange and visionary experience of being struck by lightning. Ehrlich's path leads her to Sichuan Province in western China to climb Emeishan, one of China's four sacred Buddhist mountains. For Ehrlich, a practicing Buddhist, the climb is both a spiritual pilgrimage and a troubling encounter with a culture reeling from recent political history.

Review:
"Singular, impressionistic sketches of an otherworld."

Kirkus, 08/15/2001

Review:
"THIS COLD HEAVEN suffers from a lack of information about its author. We don't know where she comes from , in the psychological sense, so it's difficult to get a bead on where she's going, or how her experiences change her....Ehrlich has written a stunning portrait of a people and the landscape that shaped them. Her story has great emotional and physical sweep, and one shares her sense of loss at leaving this peculiarly fascinating place. 'For seven years I used the island as a looking glass: part window, part mirror,' she writes. It's a pity we can't learn what she saw of herself in that glass."

Elizabeth Royte, New York Times Book Review, 11/18/01
