Summary "Long rumored to exist, The Great Clod collects several essays published in The Coevolution Quarterly almost forty years ago when Snyder briefly described this work as 'The China Book,' and several others, the majority, never before published in any form. 'Summer in Hokkaido,' 'Wild in China,' 'Ink and Charcoal,' 'Wolf-Hair Brush,' these essays turn from being memoirs of travel to prolonged considerations of art, culture, natural history and religion." -- Provided by publisher.
