Coyote is intelligent, articulate, funny, compassionate -- there's not much else to ask for in any writer.
And he really tries to be fair. He's actually quite a good writer too. I am close to his age, and lived through
a lot of similar experiences, so I felt somewhat as if I was reading the thoughts of a friend.
But all of us, of that age, of those times, felt a bit like friends, and still do.
It's a wonderful book.
If you want to remember the times, or learn about them for the first time from a really good guide who you can trust,
read this book. I recommend it very highly.
In all, this book gives an insightful and seemingly honest account of a life lived in the counter-culture of Northern California during the 1960's. A great read for those interested in that time and place in American history.

And anyone who was as heavily into drugs as he was to have survived at all, not to mention completely turning their life around and becoming successful in their own chosen field, should be congratulated. I've known enough people in my own experience who didn't, and I grieve for them to this day.
I, for one, am very glad he wrote this book. In 1964 I was only twelve years old and have always felt a bit cheated that I was just too young to have been a part of what I felt even then to be a special and perhaps irreplaceable time. Reading "Sleeping Where I Fall" has given me a sense of almost having been there myself which I've never gotten from any other work on the era in quite the same way.
Thank you for writing this memoir, Peter. I do sincerely appreciate it.
