Review

Lisa Law has produced a book of depth, beauty and impact-she has captured the heart of the Sixties. -- Pubisher's Weekly, 1987

Lisa Laws wonderful photographs bring the Sixties back to me in all its chaotic vigor. -- Peter Coyote 1989

Sensational! -- Los Angeles Times 1987

About the Author

Because I was not a professional photographer but a participant of many of the events that stand out so well in the sixties, I was able to capture intimate moments behind the scenes of the movers and the shakers.. the icons of the Sixties, Bob Dylan, the Beatles, The Velvet Underground, Nico, Janis Joplin, Big Brother, and the Holding Company, Otis Redding, Tiny Tim, Timothy Leary, Dennis Hopper, Coretta Scott King, Andy Warhol, Harrison Ford, Cher, Peter Fonda.. and events like Monterey Pop Festival, Woodstock and the Human Be-In. Stories and interviews included give one a feeling that they were there sharing those special moments frozen in time. An introduction by Ram Dass lets the reader know how important this history is. Because of this book, the Museum of American History at the Smithsonian exhibited a show of 63 pieces of my work which you can see on line and they hold a permanent collection of 208 images for all time. If you wish you were there or you were, you will love this book. This is the fourth edition and the best of all.

Format: Paperback
Lisa Laws wonderful photographs bring the Sixties back to me in all its chaotic vigor. Several of her photos are in my book, Sleeping Where I Fall, and besides being a great pal, she has been an avid and persistent chronicler of her time. It's a treat to see once again, friends, heros, and icons "as they were" ...uncreased by age, and borne aloft by promise and hope.

A comprehensive and colorful overview of the counter culture and the communities of the Sixties. This book is a must for the collection of any 60's culture enthusiast. Come to know the personalities of the sixties intimately through the progressive accounts in this book. The photographs are amazing! See for yourself....

If you weren't there when it was all happening, this wonderfully gifted photogropher was.

Lisa Law will take your hand and bring you back to one of the most vibrant times in our history. See it for the first time, or just go back for a visit.

Our sese of inocennse is still waiting there for us. Perhaps we can recapture it.

This is one of the most awesome books I've ever had the delight to see.

Great photos and stories of the musicians and icons and events of the sixties by someone who was right in the center of everything that happened. I wish I had bought a brand new copy.
