Reviews

Praise for A Pelican in the Wilderness

Few books contain a cast of characters as fascinating as those who populate A Pelican in the Wilderness, Isabel Colegate's charming meander through the history of hermits and solitaries. Elegantly written . . . a small gem of a book. --The Wall Street Journal

A bright and highly literate study of asceticism in both the East and the West. --Los Angeles Times

This is a charming book . . . witty and sagacious, entertaining and persuasive. It is not a volume that can be characterized as history or memoir or even a travel book but contains the best elements of all. --The Washington Times
