Andrew Schelling has published twenty books. Love, wilderness, old languages, the power of animals and plants run through his poetry. He has worked on wolf reintroduction to the Southern Rockies, opposed egregious cell phone towers, taught poetry, and translated from the languages of India, largely Sanskrit and old dialects. His first book Dropping the Bow: Poems from Ancient India, received the Academy of American Poets translation prize. In April 2014 he and three other poets did A PAIR OF TREES OPENS A NEW LIFE, a tree-planting poetry-walk along the John Muir Way in Scotland, a hike of 130 miles from Dunbarton to Helensborough. Recent books include From the Arapaho Songbook and A Possible Bag (poetry), The Real People of Wind & Rain: Talks, Essays and an Interview, a volume of translations, Bright as an Autumn Moon, and the anthology Love and the Turning Seasons. He lives along the Indian Peaks, outside Boulder, Colorado, where he teaches at Naropa University. He is also a founding arts faculty at Deer Park Institute, in India’s bird-thronged Himalayan foothills.
