Snyder travelled extensivly throughout Asia before he settled in Kyoto and studied under Oda Sessi Roshim, the Zen Master and the leading Abbott of Daitoku-Ji. Subsequently, he established his own commune in an isolated area of the Sierras, California and became a revered spokesperson, advocating preservation of the natural world throughout his extensive literary body. He is quoted as saying, "As Poet, I hold the most archaic values on earth; the fertility of the soul, the magic of animals, the power-vision in solitude….the common work of the tribe" and his work has aimed, and succeeded, in instilling an ecological conciousness in it's readership.
