The collection documents his career as a poet, essayist, editor, ecologist, translator of classical Indian poetry, and as a professor at Naropa University.

Background
Poet and translator Andrew Crombie Schelling was born January 14, 1953 in Washington, D.C. He grew up in the Boston area and graduated from Lexington High School in 1970. After studying at the University of Rochester from 1971-1973, Schelling made his first trip to India and then transferred to the University of California, Santa Cruz. On the west coast, Schelling began studying poetry, Zen Buddhism, and Sanskrit. He received his B.A. in religious studies from UCSC in 1975, and then continued studying Sanskrit and Asian literature at UC Berkeley. Lacking departmental support for his proposed master's thesis on linguist and poet Jaime de Angulo, Schelling left UCB in 1980.
