Publisher's Summary

Would you believe that one man championed the cause of Native Americans with Leonard Peltier, helped migrant farm workers with Cesar Chavez, traveled to Nepal, hiked the Himalayas, explored Africa and founded The Paris Review? It's true, and it's the life of Peter Matthiessen. Listen to entrancing travel tales and real life anecdotes from this author of At Play in the Fields of the Lord and the National Book Award-winning The Snow Leopard.

A fantastic glimpse of Matthiessen

Now that they have upgraded the sound quality of this I can highly recommend it.
It is an interview with only Matthiessen speaking. There are wonderful moments of revelation both of his life as an author and as a Zen student/teacher. Great insight!
This is a good companion for those reading <i>The Snow Leopard</i>.
