The poet/author describes his quest to find the famous T’ang poet Han-shan, which means "Cold Mountain." In 1974, Lenfestey discovered the writings of Han-shan, who spoke to the author's spirit "in a way no other poet had," according to promotional materials. The resulting book, "Seeking the Cave," entails "a journey across continents and cultures; through time, language and poetry; and ultimately into the author’s identity."
