Praise for "A Pelican in the Wilderness"

"Few books contain a cast of characters as fascinating as those who populate "A Pelican in the Wilderness", Isabel Colegate's charming meander through the history of hermits and solitaries. Elegantly written . . . a small gem of a book." --"The Wall Street Journal"

"A bright and highly literate study of asceticism in both the East and the West." --"Los Angeles Times"

"This is a charming book . . . witty and sagacious, entertaining and persuasive. It is not a volume that can be characterized as history or memoir or even a travel book but contains the best elements of all." --"The Washington Times"
