Reviews

"A jewel ... firmly in the company of Matthiessen, Chatwin, and O'Hanlon."
-- Parabola

"A fascinating, beautifully written account of a great (and delightful) Ch'an master's return pilgrimage to remote Inner Mongolia after forty years of exile."
-- Peter Matthiessen, author of The Snow Leopard

"Crane chronicles their perilous and miraculous adventures, the beauty of Mongolia's wilderness of wind and sand, and Tsung Tsai's transcendent determination with uncommon clarity, wit, vitality, and love."
-- Booklist (starred review)

"A search for lost time, which the author recounts with haunting brilliance."
-- Richmond Times-Dispatch

"As if a Ch'an master stepped out of the ancient tales and took you on a journey both moving and inspiring."
-- Jack Kornfield, author of After the Ecstasy, the Laundry
