I grew up just a little too young to be a hippie in the Sixties, but old enough to want to be and to adopt the values they stood for. This first-hand account afforded me an intimate account of one persons experience of those timed and a reminder of the importance of those values. Thank you, Peter Coyote.
This memoir weaves together a series of reflections, insights and narratives stemming from Coyote's memories and experiences of life during the counterculture revolution in America. Coyote's experiences are recalled with vigour and sentimentality as he reflects upon experiments with commune living, family life, the arts movement and his own personal journey are woven together artfully, producing a thoughtful and well considered narrative. This beautifully compiled memoir reflects upon many of the ideologies that were at the fore of the counterculture revolution.
While it can seem long-winded at times, and naivety seemingly presents itself with a startling air, it is worthwhile to stick these sections out, as Coyote's reflections of these past attitudes and ideologies are an integral part of his story.
A worthwhile read for anyone seeking to learn more about this era.
