Quick enough service on this book / dvd package.
David Hackbarth
The scenery is beyond beautiful, and hearing these men speak, and hearing Snyder read his own poetry, is far more remarkable than just reading the written word.
L.A. in CA
This film serves very well as a source for additional discussion about that subject.

I really enjoyed reading Part One of this book. The conversational exchanges between Gary Snyder and Jim Harrison were wonderful. Many times I stopped and re-read portions over and over again - sometimes 4 or 5 times. I wish that the entire book had been one long conversation between the men. However, after Part One, the rest of the book is somewhat repetitive. Parts Two and Three consist of the transcript/outtakes of the included DVD - much of which had already been covered in Part One.

My suggestion is this: Watch the DVD first. The scenery is beyond beautiful, and hearing these men speak, and hearing Snyder read his own poetry, is far more remarkable than just reading the written word. Then, go back and read the book. It will give you time to meditate a bit on some of the things written there.

I read all of Gary Snyder's poetry and even lived a few years near his place in Northern California, and met him once. I also read all of Jim Harrison's work, though never had the chance to talk face to face like I did with Gary. This book comes as close as it gets to unedited insights into two lives well-lived. Zen, literature, the 1960s and a growing Earth-based consciousness owes a debt to these two.

It was very interesting to listen these two literary weavers of the wild experience as they reflected on "nature" and our human relation to it. I have always been attracted to philosophies that examine the ways we make sense of our experience on this planet, and I also love Gary Snyder's poems, so I looked forward to watching this meeting of the minds. Ironically, as a film about nature there was almost nothing natural about it; I could not escape from the fact that they were being filmed throughout and were deliberately discoursing for the benefit of the camera.

Despite this, their conversation was filled with ideas and reflections not commonly heard in our national discourse. It has made me newly aware of our narcisssism as a species and our lack of respect for the natural environment. This film serves very well as a source for additional discussion about that subject. A printed transcript has been thoughtfully included.

Free from captivity, free from the structure of humanity, what does it really mean to be wild? "The Etiquette of Freedom: Gary Snyder, Jim Harrison, and the Practice of the Wild" is a collections of discussions between the authors Gary Snyder and Jim Harrison discuss their lives and opinions of the wild, deep ecology, and more. In a humorous and conversational style, "The Etiquette of Freedom" will prove an enlightening and fun read, and comes with the movie 'The Practice of the Wild', for a more complete experience.

I was nicely surprised by this book that not only has some great Snyder poems, but,pics, text and a DVD. Also a last glimpse of Jim Harrison's mind before it's bodily essence transformed

I was full of expectations when I ordered this book but I found it ... disconcerting. Repetitive at times, alluding to people and events I am not familiar with. Maybe for a reader more familiar with the two protagonists?

Though they are not equally blessed with the gift of gab on camera these two master storytellers create a fascinating journey here that I found more than worthy of fascination and gratitude. The DVD is worth the price alone, but the pages allow one to chew more thoroughly and savor the tastes of the words.

In Denim on 8th Street

At the time, this was the late 1970's, I was working as a metal engraver for New Hermes 20 Cooper Square East Village, NY.
I took off early from work and headed west on 8th street towards 6th Avenue. I was walking on the north side of the street
and Gary Snyder was walking east on the south side of the street. We were both dressed in denim, except he wore a Stetson.
8th street was unusually quiet and disserted for that time of day, it was morning and the city was sun drenched and warm.
We both took notice of one another at least a block before standing across from one another. We only paused a fraction of
a moment in acknowledgement. I felt I somehow should say something, there was nothing to stop me from addressing this
stranger who looked somehow familiar. After all there was no one anywhere to be seen except the two of us. But I did not.
A few days later I picked up an issue of East-West magazine and there he was on the cover, my favorite poet Gary Snyder.
I had never seen a picture of him before. Had I known, I would not have hesitated and would have crossed the street,
introduced myself and probably spend the rest of the day enjoying his company. Two quiet poets in denim on 8th street.
Life sure is funny. I still have that magazine although I'm not sure where in my messy den it is, but I do love his word.
Gary is twenty years older and wiser than I am, The Practice of the Wild is a good way to get to know Mr. Snyder.
