Danger on Peaks

Print
Written by Gary Snyder

Danger o­n Peaks, Gary Snyder's first collection of new poems in 20 years, begins with a recollection an earlier climb of Mt. St. Helens in 1945 and the news, which he learned o­n descent, of the atomic bombs and Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Old Man Coyote and the road signs along a freeway are among the characters about which Snyder writes. The book spans Hiroshima-Nagasaki to the Buddhas of Bamiyan Valley.
