This book gathers together a wide cross section of haiku with a selection of the diaries of the wandering Japanese poet Santoka (1882-1940). Santoka lived his life in the Zen hermit poetic tradition of Japan that includes Matsuo Basho, Ryokan, and Saigyo Hoshi. The open road was to become both his home and monastery. As he said, "Days I don't enjoy: Any day I don't walk, drink sake, and compose haiku".
