First I want to say "Thank you" to Mr. Roskind for giving us such a great work that shows and teaches the children of your generation what it means to be truely free. Roskind takes you on an adventure that so many wish they could have taken, had we been born in time. ('71 for me) Eventhough he isn't preechy in his ideas of freedom and spirituality the reader cant help but take away what the essence of what both truely mean and then finding out how you fit in. Lots of fresh little gems of humor and intersting facts about why certain things are illegal. I loved reading about his experiences in the bay area and beyond. Since I'm from the Berkeley area it makes it even more interesting. I'm definatley looking forward to reading his other books.
