Jim Harrison and Gary Snyder are icons of genius in the literary world. I found the most meaningful element in both the book and in the DVD that of the human contrast between Snyder and Harrison. I can imagine Harrison having sex and enjoying it immensely, sloppy, sensual, erotic, but can't imagine the same for Snyder. I find Harrison, both in listening to him on the DVD and in his writings (novels and poetry) as a fully human, vulnerable, creature. I find Snyder, in contrast, as stiff and self-absorbed in both listening to him and reading his poetry.

Gary Snyder's voice resounds across the long shot of the vast Pacific Ocean in the establishing shot of John J. Healey's new film The Practice of the Wild. The encompassing wild wave of the ocean is a transcendental cipher in both the transcendentalist movement and East Asian Buddhisms, both important in Snyder's work, signifying for the former, nature's sublimity, and for the latter, awakened mind.

Gary Snyder joined his old friend, novelist Jim Harrison, to discuss their loves and lives and what has become of them throughout the years. Set amidst the natural beauty of the Santa Lucia Mountains, their conversations—harnessing their ideas of all that is wild, sacred and intimate in this world—move from the admission that Snyder’s mother was a devout atheist to his personal accounts of his initiation into Zen Buddhist culture, being literally dangled by the ankles over a cliff. After years of living in Japan, Snyder returns to the States to build a farmhouse in the remote foothills of the Sierras, a homestead he calls Kitkitdizze.For all of the depth in these conversations, Jim Harrison and Gary Snyder are humorous and friendly, and with the artfully interspersed dialogue from old friends and loves like Scott Slovic, Michael McClure, Jack Shoemaker, and Joanne Kyger, the discussion reaches a level of not only the personal, but the global, redefining our idea of the Beat Generation and challenging the future directions of the environmental movement and its association with “Deep Ecology.”The Etiquette of Freedom is an all-encompassing companion to the film The Practice of the Wild. A DVD is included which contains the film together with more than an hour of out-takes and expanded interviews, as well as an extended reading by Gary Snyder. The whole offers a rare glimpse of their extended discussion of life and what it means to be wild and alive.

It was very interesting to listen these two literary weavers of the wild experience as they reflected on "nature" and our human relation to it. I have always been attracted to philosophies that examine the ways we make sense of our experience on this planet, and I also love Gary Snyder's poems, so I looked forward to watching this meeting of the minds. Ironically, as a film about nature there was almost nothing natural about it; I could not escape from the fact that they were being filmed throughout and were deliberately discoursing for the benefit of the camera.

Despite this, their conversation was filled with ideas and reflections not commonly heard in our national discourse. It has made me newly aware of our narcisssism as a species and our lack of respect for the natural environment. This film serves very well as a source for additional discussion about that subject. A printed transcript has been thoughtfully included.

It was very enjoyable to listen to all these intelligent and informed men speak on varied topics. I guess I would refer to it as some philosophy with "color". I didn't know about Gary Snyder; I'm very impressed. I've known Jim for years from when he lived in upper Michigan. Lovely family.

I found the most meaningful element in both the book and in the DVD that of the human contrast between Snyder and Harrison. I can imagine Harrison having sex and enjoying it immensely, sloppy, sensual, erotic, but can't imagine the same for Snyder. I find Harrison, both in listening to him on the DVD and in his writings (novels and poetry) as a fully human, vulnerable, creature. I find Snyder, in contrast, as stiff and self-absorbed in both listening to him and reading his poetry. Even the visual scene of the two of them together, the contrast in clothing (Snyder dressed in standard form; Harrison dressed as if he just got up from the nap). The contrast hit me hard. I prefer the Harrison Zen to the Snyder Zen. I hope someone does a documentary on Jim Harrison, a life fully lived.

As far as movies and documentaries go, it is not academy award cinema. But it is very well done and the topic and subjects - to me - make this a must have video. Jim Harrison and Gary Snyder are icons of genius in the literary world.

I read all of Gary Snyder's poetry and even lived a few years near his place in Northern California, and met him once. I also read all of Jim Harrison's work, though never had the chance to talk face to face like I did with Gary. This book comes as close as it gets to unedited insights into two lives well-lived. Zen, literature, the 1960s and a growing Earth-based consciousness owes a debt to these two.

This is a fascinating distillation of reflection and commentary which, though centering on Gary Snyder's life and work, takes you through a social history of the Beat poets, Buddhist teachings, and an overarching reverence for nature at scales large and small. Though primarily a recording of conversations between two old friends, the voices of other poets, friends, and teachers add a lot of depth to the book.

Though they are not equally blessed with the gift of gab on camera these two master storytellers create a fascinating journey here that I found more than worthy of fascination and gratitude. The DVD is worth the price alone, but the pages allow one to chew more thoroughly and savor the tastes of the words.
