Annotation The West coast had its Haight-Ashbury, New York had its Greenwich Village. But just as vital and astounding was the loosely unified band of hippies, outlaws and freaks that lived in and around Lawrence, Kansas in the '60s. These stories are the result of numerous tape sessions with the survivors, freely associated tales of the fantastic and bizarre episodes of love and joy, death, desertion and loss, but always recollections that sing with exuberance. The Kaw Valley Hemp Pickers were the Midwestern partisans of the counterculture struggle against mediocrity, conformity and war. This book is truth and fiction, fiction and truth. It is, in a real sense, a document from the times. Explicit descriptions of sex, some violence, and strong language.
