Wilderness Press :: Special Interest :: Meditations of Walt Whitman
Meditations of Walt Whitman
Meditations of Walt Whitman 
In revising Leaves of Grass for its 1856 edition, Walt Whitman sacrificed the large pages of the first edition, meant to accommodate his long lines of verse, for smaller pages, with the idea that the reader would be able to enjoy the "ideal pleasure": "to put a book in your pocket and off to the seashore or the forest." It is with this same ideal in mind that Chris Highland has assembled the fourth book in the successful Meditations series, Meditations of Walt Whitman, a pocket-sized compendium of passages from Leaves of Grass. Whitman's lifelong endeavor, Leaves of Grass, is the culmination of his poetic work, published first in 1855, and constantly revised until its last edition in 1881, eleven years before his death. In Meditations of Walt Whitman, passages from Leaves of Grass are paired with the words of a variety of historical and contemporary thinkers, such as Margaret Fuller, Friedrich Nietzsche, Jane Goodall, Mark Twain, Marc Chagall, Helen Keller, Buddha, Dante, and Bhagavad Gita.

About Chris Highland

The one with muddy boots and sap on his hands, with pantlegs soaked in the baptism of waterfall spray, is Chris Highland. He is a minister, a chaplain, a spiritual scootcher who has led expeditions into wisdom traditions, along mystic trails and heretic paths, for many a year.

A graduate of Seattle Pacific University with a degree in Religion and Philosophy, Chris came to Marin County, California to earn his Masters at San Francisco Theological Seminary in San Anselmo. His long journey as a chaplain has taken him from schools to jails to the streets, and his adventure of the heart has led him from the Cascades to the Sierras to the Rockies, and to the Highlands of Scotland.
