About the Author

DAVID HINTON is one of the most lauded modern translators of Chinese poetry and of the Chinese philosophical classics.

A deft collection of short poems on the desert of the American West.--Spirituality & Practice Desert is artfully composed by a poet fully attuned to his craft and to the sages who wrote before him. He successfully takes that tradition to the American desert, with meditative poems in which the writer is secondary to the magnificence of habitat.--Rain Taxi Review of Books
