Review:

This richly rewarding book about ecology and technology draws on 40 years of careful thought. Although it does not dwell on information technologies, the points Snyder makes about "a feeling of place" are of interest to anyone who has mulled over the ways in which cyberspace jogs our normative notions of time, space, and community.

About the Author:

Gary Snyder has been a professor of English on the faculty of the University of California at Davis since 1985.
