A collection of previously uncollected and unpublished works by a Pulitzer Prize-winning Beat poet Gary Snyder, written during his most productive and important years

Many of these have been published in magazines or as broadsides, including Spel Against DemonsDear Mr. PresidentHymn to the Goddess San FranciscoSmokey the Bear SutraA Curse on the Men in WashingtonPentagon. The collection also includes a great number of translations from Chinese and Japanese poets. Much of this work has been gleaned from journals, manuscripts and correspondence, and never before published in any form.
