Description: An anti-materialistic hippie searches for Utopia, but finds the most notorious get-rich-quick scheme of the 20th century.
It’s the summer of 1971. The Vietnam War rages on. Nixon declares the War on Drugs. Jim Morrison dies in a bathtub. And all a nice Jewish boy from Miami wants is escape Paradise so he can find Utopia. Doug is a 17-year old hippie-wannabe who has all the answers. It’s just the questions that elude him. So he sets off on a psychedelic journey across America in his steel-toed boots. It’s a drug-hazed time of shag carpets and free love while trying to steer clear of farm-bred mosquitoes, a chainsaw attack, escaped convicts, angry villagers, a satanic cult and a pack of wild dogs. Doug’s journey becomes a wild ride with a merry band of folks looking for their piece of the American Dream. Instead he stumbles into the most notorious get-rich-quick scheme of the twentieth century, and learns the true meaning of American Karma.
Reviews: "If you were born a little late (or even a little early) to experience the 60's, this is a must read. It's the kind of wild ride that makes you wish for days when people had that kind of freedom while simultaneously being glad that they're gone. Doug shear uses bright imagery and a sardonic wit to keep you turning the page. I recommend this book to anyone with a thirst for adventure and a sense of humor."
