About this title


While a few selections from Snyder's journal poem Mountains and Rivers Without End have been published since it was begun in the 1950s, the completed work appears for the first time in this volume. Like a scroll unrolling the broad landscape of Snyder's travels, Mountains and Rivers will stand alongside Whitman's Leaves of Grass, Pound's Cantos, and Williams's Paterson as an ideal of the long poem in American English.
