The time is just after World War II. Asheville is a small, proper town, and in the country, farming is a traditional way of life. The houses are secluded, down in a hollow or scattered far apart along a dirt road. Reading is by lamplight, water is carried to the house from the spring. The stillness is broken only by familiar voices or the sounds of nature. Life is simple and hard, the family poor and proud.The foods are delicious "vittles" of the southern mountains. From gardens, farmyards, and woods, these are the provisions of people who worked the land.The language is forthright, colorful, and earthy. Here are seven hundred old words and sayings, most of them brought to the moutains by British settlers. Many date from medieval and Elizabethan England, and some are not fit for polite society.This is a path trod by rural people. Listen to them and know the way we were.

John Swain's Under the Mountain Born collects 100 poems, many of which have appeared in fine little mags and zines. Swain's images like his tenses shift. they are plastic: now ephemeral, suddenly very real and so forth. The result is a steadiness of voice, though the poems greatly vary. The man can write a sentence, i'd say. Generally speaking nature would seem to be at the fore. The star subject of his poems, though, are his thoughts which in wheeling figure-eights convey private takes-chiefly on things like consciousness, conscience, duty, guilt, rapture, protected innocence, sorrow and the role beauty plays in this world.

The most comprehensive collection of Tibetan works in a Western language, this volume illuminates the complex historical, intellectual, and social development of Tibetan civilization from its earliest beginnings to the modern period. Including more than 180 representative writings, Sources of Tibetan Tradition spans Tibet's vast geography and long history, presenting for the first time a diversity of works by religious and political leaders; scholastic philosophers and contemplative hermits; monks and nuns; poets and artists; and aristocrats and commoners. The selected readings reflect the profound role of Buddhist sources in shaping Tibetan culture while illustrating other major areas of knowledge. Thematically varied, they address history and historiography; political and social theory; law; medicine; divination; rhetoric; aesthetic theory; narrative; travel and geography; folksong; and philosophical and religious learning, all in relation to the unique trajectories of Tibetan civil and scholarly discourse. The editors begin each chapter with a survey of broader social and cultural contexts and introduce each translated text with a concise explanation. Concluding with writings that extend into the early twentieth century, this volume offers an expansive encounter with Tibet's exceptional intellectual heritage.
