Published about the time of the first Woodstock 'happening,' this debut novel deals with anti-war protesters on a New England college campus. Well worth the read, especially for anyone who was there at the time. Wonder how the Vietnam protests came to be? The young (and middle-aged) people in Ford's story will show that it was all in motion at the beginning of the 1960s.
