Letters from 1836... These first-person accounts of a trapper's life in the Rockies were letters written by Robert Campbell to his brother. They were first published as a serial in the National Atlas and Tuesday Morning Mail (Philadelphia), Nov 1 - Dec 6, 1836 giving eastern Americans a view onto the wild mountains of the West.. The five letters present an authentic look at the wild frontier of that time period of the early 1800's, and tell much of the bloody encounters with the various tribes of the area, both friendly and not. A quick, but fascinating read.

Letter to Beaumont Letters Written from the Mountain and Related Writings

Letter to Beaumont  Letters Written from the Mountain  and Related Writings

These are the first translations of both the “History” and the “Vision.”

Author: Jean-Jacques Rousseau

Publisher: Dartmouth

ISBN: UOM:39015054271625

Category: Literary Collections

Published between 1762 and 1765, these writings are the last works Rousseau wrote for publication during his lifetime. Responding in each to the censorship and burning of Emile and Social Contract, Rousseau airs his views on censorship, religion, and the relation between theory and practice in politics. The Letter to Beaumont is a response to a Pastoral Letter by Christophe de Beaumont, Archbishop of Paris (also included in this volume), which attacks the religious teaching in Emile. Rousseau’s response concerns the general theme of the relation between reason and revelation and contains his most explicit and boldest discussions of the Christian doctrines of creation, miracles, and original sin. In Letters Written from the Mountain, a response to the political crisis in Rousseau’s homeland of Geneva caused by a dispute over the burning of his works, Rousseau extends his discussion of Christianity and shows how the political principles of the Social Contract can be applied to a concrete constitutional crisis. One of his most important statements on the relation between political philosophy and political practice, it is accompanied by a fragmentary “History of the Government of Geneva.” Finally, “Vision of Peter of the Mountain, Called the Seer” is a humorous response to a resident of Motiers who had been inciting attacks on Rousseau during his exile there. Taking the form of a scriptural account of a vision, it is one of the rare examples of satire from Rousseau’s pen and the only work he published anonymously after his decision in the early 1750s to put his name on all his published works. Within its satirical form, the “Vision” contains Rousseau’s last public reflections on religious issues. Neither the Letter to Beaumont nor the Letters Written from the Mountain has been translated into English since defective translations that appeared shortly after their appearance in French. These are the first translations of both the “History” and the “Vision.”

Letters from a Sacred Mountain Place

Letters from a Sacred Mountain Place

The strength of the book rests in her ecstatic recollection of the minute details of the mountain world and her humble encounters with the beautiful people of the high Himalayas.

Poetry. Literary Nonfiction. Asian & Asian American Studies. Walk with Diane Frank, poet and novelist, on a 400-mile trek in the Nepal Himalayas. With photographs and her beautifully written narrative, she will take you to many Sacred Mountain Places. You will trek on mountain trails around Annapurna, with an ascent of 17,800 feet to Thorong La, and anoint your spirit in the sacred fountains of Muktinath. You will climb the Everest trail with astounding views of the mountains and go on pilgrimage to Buddhist temples and monasteries. The rushing water of sacred rivers will sing to your imagination. With each step of your journey, you will be transformed by the magic of the mountains. "LETTERS FROM A SACRED MOUNTAIN PLACE captures the wide-eyed wonder of Diane Frank's travels through Nepal, prior to the 1990 Democracy Revolution and the decades of upheaval that followed. She has composed a poetic homage to a place and culture that forever changed all who experienced it--and that still awakens newcomers to their inner journey."--Jeff Greenwald "Diane Frank's LETTERS FROM A SACRED MOUNTAIN PLACE evokes the citadels of silence that define the essence of the Himalayas. The strength of the book rests in her ecstatic recollection of the minute details of the mountain world and her humble encounters with the beautiful people of the high Himalayas. The glory of idyllic life enjoyed during her treks in 1988 and 1989 has become a thing of the past, thanks to the merciless encroachment of the Western world and homegrown greed of senseless politicians in Nepal."--Yuyutsu Sharma
