Today there is a familiar sense of self-estrangement that haunts
contemporary life in the West. The Recovery of Ecstasy gently and
gingerly leads the reader to explore a different way of being in
the world. With a detour through the central Siberian Steppe, and
drawing upon aspects of Western thought that incorporate deep
structures of primal life, the most cherished assumptions of
Western civilization are laid bare. This work allows the reader to
recover a feral experience of ecstasy resident in each of us - in
our genome, so to speak. Reviews: "Your book is really good I like
it You're an excellent writer. Thank you for your work " Derrick
Jensen (Author of Endgame) "Here is a book that is equal parts
philosophy, love story, and vision of how we could live a more
authentic and joyful life. It is well worth picking up and
reading." Alex McGilvery, Armchair Interviews "There's a lot going
on in this lean and lovingly crafted work... Krolick uses his own
remarkable life story like a reagent to reveal for us the feral
heart of the Siberian as his own American assumptions are subsumed
in the reaction. The result is a deeply personal story of a
rediscovery of ecstatic living... Krolick introduces us to a path
at once profoundly kind, human, primal and accessible." Narain
