About the Author
Stephen gained increased recognition in the early 70s when he embarked on a nationwide speaking tour at colleges and churches. Accompanied by some 250 young adults, mostly from Monday Night Class, in 50 school buses and assorted vehicles the tour became known as The Caravan and picked up new members as they travelled across the country.
In 1971 Stephen and the group bought land in Tennessee and founded The Farm, one of the largest and most successful alternative communities in the country. The Farm became renown for soy technology, re-introducing the home birth movement, and founding Plenty International, a relief and development organization. Stephen accepted the "Right Livelihood Award" or "Alternative Nobel Prize" for Plenty in Sweden in 1980.
Stephen, an active speaker on the alternative lifestyles circuit, was inducted into the Counter Culture Hall of Fame in Amsterdam in November 2004. He has five children and three grandchildren and lives with his wife, midwife Ina May Gaskin, on The Farm.

Everything since the 1960s has been, at best, a simulation of reality, the raw energy of those days. What generation is going to come up with something truly revolutionary? When? Are we all just going to melt?
