Great book. Mention of the Moondog play, "Thor the Nordoom", that I produced in NYC, 1966, is in the book. Production photo by James Gossage.

By the way, there's a great book about the Beats who served as fire lookouts: Poets on the Peaks: Gary Snyder, Philip Whalen and Jack Kerouac by John Suiter

During the time Gary Snyder spent on Sourdough a man named Blackie Burns was more or less in charge of the local Forest Service. He spoke in rather colorful colloquialisms. Of Snyder he said: I like that boy Snyder on Sourdough. He's a calm son of a bitch.

Giving those type of toys as gifts is a great way to passive-aggressively drive your ex-sister-in-law to the brink, though.

While we're on the subject of writers who served as fire lookouts on mountain peaks, here's John Yohe's account of the summer he spent on Aztec Peak, where Edward Abbey was also a lookout.

Why I didn't catch that glaring typo, I don't know. Should've been "who served as fire lookouts in the area in the 1950s."

The North Cascades National Park visitor center in Newhalem, Washington set up a table where visitors could write their own poetry. The sign notes that Gary Snyder and Jack Kerouac wrote in the mountains as fire lookouts.

The North Cascades National Park visitor center has a huge stone fireplace. On the hearth to the right, this Anna's hummingbird drew its last breath. Its irridescent green feathers are so lovely.

"The Beats took him in, later the counter-culture hippies, then the art crowd ferried him overseas."
