Books Info:

Seeking the Cave free pdf In this transformative book, award-winning poet and essayist James Lenfestey makes an epic journey across the world to find the Cold Mountain Cave, a location long believed to exist only in myths and the ancient home of his idol, Han Shan, author of the Cold Mountain poems. Lenfestey's voyage takes him from the Midwestern United States to Tokyo to a road trip across the expanse of China with frequent excursions to the country's rich historical and cultural landmarks. As he makes his way to the cave, Lenfestey learns more than history or geography- he discovers his identity as a writer and a poet. Interspersed with poems by both the author and Han Shan, "Seeking the Cave" will appeal to lovers of poetry and travel narrative alike.
