A companion volume to Merton's famous autobiography The Seven Storey Mountain, The Waters of Siloe gives a complete and comprehensive picture of the monk's daily existence, from the time he rose at two o'clock in the morning to sing Matins until he retired at seven in the evening. In addition, it provides an informal account of the meaning and purpose of Trappist life, told in terms of those personalities who forged and tempered the spirit of the Order through the ages.
