Read an Excerpt

            In July 1972 the Rainbow Tribe gathered for the first time since the huge 1969 rock festival known as Woodstock. On a mountaintop near Granby, Colorado, men with long hair, women in flowing skirts, and naked, happy children camped out, danced, and celebrated nature, peace, and diversity. I was there, too, doing first aid.
            I left home when I was seventeen. Florida had nothing I wanted. The once-beautiful beach was polluted, and all anyone cared about was money. Girls were expected to be Barbie, or else. I didn’t know where I was going, but I was looking for a more authentic life. The Vietnam War was ending—finally. Now it was peace, love, and rock and roll. The Age of Aquarius.
