The crime would touch a fear lurking in every parent: somehow, without warning or reason, their child would be taken from them. Never to return.This is what happened that night......

Voluntary Peasants Sharing Life, Land and Love at the Ultimate Hippie Commune—The Farm in Tennessee

Far-out true stories of a search for enlightenment in the 60s. Thirty years in the making, the whole 5-part book includes author's back story. Beyond sex, drugs and rock ‘n roll—beyond hippies. Melvyn Stiriss sheds new light on the sixties when, as a UPI reporter, he followed the story of the times over the edge to live the story himself.

Stiriss—“I co-founded and lived thirteen years in America’s biggest commune not undercover but as a full-fledged member of the hippie collective, living the dream, “saving the world.” The idea of writing about the experience came after, when I realized the importance of reporting behind-the-scenes, everyday observations of one of the most-intriguing social experiments to come out of that heady era.”

The Days That Don't Disappear

by Garry Crystal

From the author of the novel, Leaving London and the short story collection, All of Us With Our Pointless Worries and Inconsequential Dramas.

How can you ever hope to become a well-adjusted adult when your only role models are violent, bullying teachers?

An honest account of a less than idyllic childhood and a story of growing up and learning what life can really be like if you happen to be unfortunate enough.
