    1. Yet another book about the 60s counterculture, especially the intentional back-to-the-land movement, read to gather facts and feelings for a novel I’m writing. I have pawed through a lot of first-hand accounts, Naked in the Woods by Margaret Grundstein, Free Love Free Fall by Merimee Moffat, The Alternative by William Hedgepeth, many others. They all had an immediacy to them, a direct transmission of hopes, fears and failures. This one is different, brought to us by something called the Commun [...]

    2. Chock full of information about a cross section of Sixties communes, but pretty "listy" in style. Miller properly stresses that the communes were both something new--a manifestation of the various rebellious and visionary energies of the time period--and an extension of patterns that have been part of American history almost from the arrival of the first Europeans: a nature-oriented romanticism, a repulsion for decadent civilization, the desire to tap into non-European cultural wisdoms.

    5. Wonderfully researched but kind of dry, perhaps in deliberate contrast to its subject. I think I wanted it to be how I imagine Boyle's "Drop City." A great overview, though.
