"Very few writers have the courage, inner experience, and literary technique to take us into the reaches of mystic awareness. Matthiessen has; his prose is among the finest of our time—at once sensual and austere, sinewy, yet full of warmth, eloquent yet reverent, polished clean by silence and awe. Nine-Headed Dragon River is a clear gift to us from a complex man who has schooled himself to speak of central things with a most honorable exactitude."—Andrew Harvey, Vogue

"Remarkable, memorable nonfiction. Matthiessen’s prose is as strong and pure as ever."—Duncan Spencer, Washington Post

"Peter Matthiessen’s book embodies the spirit of Zen in America."—Hakuyu T. Maezumi, Zen Center of Los Angeles
