Millman journeys through the west of Ireland, a rugged geography sometimes referred to as "the last place on earth where conversation is not dead." Along the way, he meets tinkers, tramps, rat charmers, pig-gelders, and farriers -- craftspeople who have become anachronisms in an increasingly industrialized country. This book is at once a lament for and a celebration of a dying way of life. SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR.

A literary discussion of about one-half of Zane Grey's Westerns, selected to best show the broad scope of this popular author's interest in the West.

Close parallels are drawn throughout the book between Grey's work and the philosophy and writings of Thoreau. Note particularly Chapter 15 -- "The Vanishing American: A Thoreauvian Native."
McFarland & Company, 2014. Soft Cover, 6 x 9 inch format, 228 pp.
Until the trauma of the Civil War, many Americans sought to shape society into what they thought of as an Arcadia -- a public garden that depended on an ethic of communal care, and whose sense of beauty and repose related directly to an acknowledgment of mortality and limitation. Sachs explores the notion of Arcadia in the works of 19th-century nature writers, novelists, painters, horticulturists, landscape architects, and city planners. His insights suggest new ways of understanding American history and the environmental movement today.
Yale University Press, 2013. Hardcover, 480 pp.
The life and teachings of the wandering yogi Patrul Rinpoche -- a highly revered Buddhist master and scholar of nineteenth-century Tibet -- come alive in true stories gathered and translated by the French Buddhist monk Matthieur Ricard over the course of more than thirty years, based on the oral accounts of great contemporary teachers as well as written sources. Patrul's life story reveals the nature of a highly realized being as he transmits the Dharma in everything he does, teaching both simple nomads and great lamas in ways that are often unconventional and even humorous, but always with uncompromising authenticity.

A photographic slide lecture come into print, presented by Esther Howe Wheeler. Color photographs are paired with quotes from Henry David Thoreau.
Paperback, 168 pp.
The distinctly American gospel -- never before published -- of our great nature writer, mystic, ecologist, and prophet.The final harvest of a great writer's last years, Wild Fruits presents Thoreau's sacramental vision of nature--a vision compelling in part because it grew out of an approach to the natural world at once scientific and mystical. The difficulties of Thoreau's handwriting, method of composition, notations, and pagination have kept his final observations and meditations from publication until now; thanks to the assiduous efforts of Thoreau specialist Bradley Dean, this great work can finally be brought to light. Features illustrations by Abigail Rorer. This book was reviewed in Thoreau Society Bulletin 230, Winter 2000, p. 3. May also be available in paperback.
