A Veteran of the 1960's psychedelic revolution reveals the true story of the American Counterculture. How does a 22 year old alcoholic, drug-using outlaw biker/machine shop worker, in a span of less than three years, become a yoga practicing, vegetarian commune founding revolutionary, who, inspired by his psychedelic drug trips, begins to practice an Eastern form of meditation in search of inner peace? This sort of radical transformation could only take place during the 1960's Cultural Revolution, arguably America's most turbulent time when our country exploded into chaos and mad idealism. Orange Sunshine, How I Almost Survived America's Cultural Revolution, is the first hand account of what it was like to be an active participant in the movement that shaped our nation - a war baby's roller coaster ride of hot rods, guns, dope, revolution and redemption that's action-packed and heartbreakingly hilarious.
