At the height of the counter culture movement, several hundred hippies drove their school buses from San Francisco into southern Tennessee and founded America's largest, modern-day, intentional community, The Farm. This new edition of Voices from The Farm includes classic images that capture the spirit of the time and bring into sharper focus the stories of idealism and determination that shaped the growth and evolution of the “quintessential hippie commune” which has gone on to touch people and places around the world. The Farm remains a vibrant, working environment for change. Why has it lasted so long? Discover the answers as members past and present become the voices for some of their more memorable experiences.

If you like emotional books this is a good one for you. It takes you from youthful, full of energy, idealism through a ¿what have we gotten ourselves into¿ sense of being overwhelmed, into we need to change in order to survive, detouring through painful disillusionment and ending at we will endure, even if in a drastically different manner. No sugar coating here, just a pure honest look at the successes and failures of a grand experiment told not from an outside observer, but rather from those who were there living the successes and failures.
