Arran anderson, a young man fresh out of high school in the mid-sixties, discovers for himself that the new "peace and love movement" wasn't always so peaceful, or so loving.

Most people don't realize how close we came to having an armed American Revolution at the end of the 1960's. The events that prevented this from happening resulted from a revolution of love that created a total transformation in consciousness from the previous decade; but did we, as Americans, actually learn the lessons we were supposed to?

Back then, the Vietnam War was in full bloom, as well as the civil rights movement, the use of psychedelic drugs, the sexual revolution, and a whole new era of rock & roll. This fictional novel is based upon historical events, about a young man coming of age who became a hippie during those turbulent times, when the ravished soul of our country was crying out to be healed.

Re-live the stories of some real American heroes who were willing to do just about anything to end an unjust war; and what it was like for many of them who were expanding their minds through the psychedelic experience. It's about the life of the hippies, about their sub-culture, their music, and how they changed the destiny of an entire nation.
