Passage Through India
In 1962, Gary Snyder, with his wife, the poet Joanne Kyger, joined Allen Ginsberg and his companion Peter Orlovsky for a long trip to India and surrounding countries. As always, Snyder kept extensive journals of his travels and, in this particular case, also wrote the whole account in one long letter to his sister. It was an amazing trip, and one that eventually took on legendary status as an iconic Beat Voyage. Our new, expanded edition of this remarkable travel book includes dozens of photographs and slides never published before, allowing us along on a journey that transcends time.
