Mikal Gilmore, who many might know as a longtime writer for Rolling Stone, has a gift with words. In this book, he brings us a collection of stories from figures that were central to the counterculture of the 1960s. Gimore does this without extravagance or excess flare. He doesn't attempt to make these people heroes or to build them up unnecessarily. He simply tells their stories and, in the process, teaches us about the era that influenced so much of our lives today.
