Reviews

"My favorite record of an animal voyage is a book that's fluent in failure, Peter Matthiessen's nonfiction masterpiece The Snow Leopard . . . the great perfect shock of The Snow Leopard is that Matthiessen never actually sees a snow leopard . . . that failure becomes a powerful lesson in loss, a chance to meditate on the tangled nature of visibility and invisibility." --Sam Anderson, The New York Times Magazine

"A masterpiece that exceeds the boundaries of the travel genre and envelops you with its incredible prose." --Wall Street Journal

"Stunning . . . Fiercely felt and magnificently written . . . [Matthiessen] has expressed with uncommon candor and no prospect of relief, a longing which keeps the soul striving and alert in us all." --Washington Post

"A magical book, a kind of lunar paradigm and map of the sacred." --The Nation

"A beautiful, magnificent book that gives off at once the resonance of a classic . . . One of the most wonderful accountsI know of journeying in our time." --W. S. Merwin
