May Book of the Month - The Snow Leopard by Peter Mattheissen

For May we'll be reading The Snow Leopard by Peter mattheissen. To continue enjoying the fine weather we'll be back outdoors at New Day Bakery.

"In 1973, Peter Matthiessen and field biologist George Schaller traveled high into the remote mountains of Nepal to study the Himalayan blue sheep and possibly glimpse the rare and beautiful snow leopard. Matthiessen, a student of Z en Buddhism, was also on a spiritual quest?to find the Lama of Shey at the ancient shrine on Crystal Mountain. As the climb proceeds, Matthiessen charts his inner path as well as his outer one, with a deepening Buddhist understanding of reality, suffering, impermanence, and beauty."

    Great descriptive language and insights into Buddhism. I like some of the author's quotes beyond this book too about becoming a Seeker!

    Still planning on attending if anybody will be there! I suggested a "next book" to Chad this morning called Last to See by Douglas Adams and Mark Carwardine published in 1990. I just found a copy at SVDP on River Road and will bring it to pass around as a possible future read...zemgt

    Sorry too ...I just moved here this weekend and I evidently over-commited ;/
    I am 20 pages into the book and really enjoy it. However, I will not be attending either. Looking forward to next meeting!

      I ordered a used copy from Amazon but that was about 2 weeks ago and no sign of it yet... So I wouldn't recommend that route!
