About the Author:

Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Gary Snyder is the author of many volumes of poetry and essays, including Left Out in the Rain, Riprap and Cold Mountain Poems, Mountains and Rivers without End, and The Practice of the Wild. He teaches literature and wilderness thought at the University of California at Davis and lives with his family on the San Juan Ridge in the Sierra foothills.

Review:

"A fascinating case study and verse autobiography of a man who long ago staked his claim as one of America's finest poets." -- Robert Creeley

"The reading is something like archeology, sifting the layers that have built up over the years to find the source of a familiar voice... Left Out in the Rain shows us the footsteps in the wet meadow grass..." -- Los Angeles Times
