"
O Grady deftly handles literary and spiritual references, weaving them successfully in and out of the text. A thoughtful and enticing journey for anyone with a passion for the wild and a fascination with those who define their lives beyond the boundaries posed by society. "

O Grady brings a scholar s care for information and understanding to pilgrim s sense of adventure. The book s broad list of works cited provides a fine reading list in wilderness literature. Highly recommended. "

A significant contribution. "
Weber Studies""
A virtuoso performance. This centric, eclectic study is compelling because of its own authentic wildness dispensing with academic poses, the author instead uses a technique he calls bricolage to provide an interesting juxtaposition of personal commentary, biographical and historical background, literary theory, philosophy, and textual analysis. Deftly and clearly reveals the biographical and historical contexts of some of the most important American wilderness writing of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Shows the value of scholarship ecocriticism that is fully engaged with literary texts and at the same time attuned to the complexities of the human mind, social relationships, and the nonhuman world.

An exceptional book. Unlike many recent contributions to the burgeoning scholarship on nature writing, this study remains liberated from the customary preoccupation with attempting to define genre or canon. Instead, the book is effectively focused around the psychological, emotional, and literary effects of human encounters with the wilderness. Readers who come to the book with genuine interest in a literature that both mediates and expresses the human encounter with wilderness will be impressed with John O Grady s accomplishment in "Pilgrims to the Wild."
