Psychedelic conception and birth of what would become one of the most significant experiments in back-to-the-land, collective living - reported by a former UPI reporter, who followed the '60s over the edge to join 300 hippies in the creation of The Farm - a remarkable, eclectic, agrarian, spiritual, community, village, back-to-the-land lifestyle and cannabis church in rural Tennessee - with 1,500-members, America's biggest commune - awarded the "Alternative Nobel Peace Prize" - the Swedish Right Livelihood Award - "For caring, sharing, and acting with and on behalf of those in need at home and abroad."
Adventurous, entertaining, nonfiction novel and portal into magical, mystical times - telepathy, energy, auras, vibrations, marijuana; tripping on LSD, Peyote and Magic Mushrooms, enlightenment quests, Zen hippies, gurus, midwives, spiritual vegans. A psychedelic odyssey from Greenwich Village beatniks in the '50s to Woodstock, the San Francisco spiritual smorgasbord of 1969; Stephen Gaskin's round-the-country, save-the-world school bus caravan - landing up Moonshine Alley - FBI, KKK, and Tennessee vigilantes all watching.
Voluntary Peasants Labor of Love is a literary labor of love about a down-to-Earth, real-life, collective labor of love of thousands of people dedicated to create a gracious, sustainable way of living - a lifestyle the whole world can afford.
