'Raditzer' () "In 'Raditzer' Peter Matthiessen has written a short novel about one of the most astonishing scoundrels we have seen in a long time. He certainly seems dull at first sight.

  Nine-Headed Dragon River is a clear gift to us from a complex man who has schooled himself to speak of central things with a most honorable exactitude."—Andrew Harvey, Vogue "Remarkable, memorable nonfiction. Matthiessen's prose is as strong and pure as ever."—Duncan Spencer, Washington PostBrand: Shambhala.   He had a short story adapted into a film, The Young One (), by Luis Buñuel, but his third novel, Raditzer (), about the scion of a wealthy family going to sea, made little impact.

Ships from United Rating: % positive. Peter Matthiessen ( – April 5, ) was an American novelist, naturalist, wilderness writer, zen teacher and CIA officer.

A co-founder of the literary magazine The Paris Review, he was the only writer to have won the National Book Award in both fiction and nonfiction. He was also a prominent environmental activist. Matthiessen's nonfiction featured nature and travel, notably The Children: Lucas Matthiessen, Sara Carey Matthiessen, Rue Matthiessen, Alex Matthiessen.

When Matthiessen went to Nepal to study the Himalayan blue sheep and, possibly, to glimpse the rare and beautiful snow leopard, he undertook his five-week trek as winter snows were sweeping into the high passes. This is a radiant and deeply moving account of a "true pilgrimage, a journey of the heart".4/5(36).Fitfully, this "Snow Leopard" seems to me his best book of nonfiction.

Otherwise--again--his last would be. "The Tree Where Man Was Born" () is not only a search through Africa for the birthplace of man, but somehow for Mr. Matthiessen's own birth, as if he wished to start over.Peter Matthiessen has 75 books on Goodreads with ratings. Peter Matthiessen’s most popular book is The Snow Leopard.
