    I read this book about a year ago, recommended to me by Kris Hemensley of Collected Works Bookshop who knows my idiosyncrasies I felt quite a bit in common with Andrew Schelling as over the years I have written books all touching on wild, poetry, ecology and Asia as well as being engaged with Sanskrit language The book is currently in a different place from me so I can t refer back to it, but I recall scribbling a lot in the margins Maybe I ll come back to this review later.
