Inhaltsangabe: Few small towns in America have as colorful a history as that of Woodstock, New York. Long before it was put on the map by the Woodstock Festival at Max Yasgur's Sullivan County farm in the summer of 1969, Woodstock was established as a haven for free-thinkers driven to the "earthly paradise" to pursue their vision of a Utopian, self-sufficient community. In this captivating history, Alf Evers shows how this community has been constantly redefined as successive generations of bohemians, artists, and exiles from the city have settled in this town, both unique to and exemplary of the American culture of which it has been so vital a part.
Über den Autor: Alf Evers was born in New York and brought up on a farm in Ulster County. As a boy, one of his favorite activities was listening to the tales of old-timers. He went to school in New Paltz, and attended Hamilton College and the Arts Student League. Among his varied occupations have been farming, landscape gardening, creating greeting card verses-and by no means least, writing over fifty children's books. He has also contributed many articles to newspapers and to the New York Conservationist, was on the editorial board of New York Folklore Quarterly, and was vice president of the New York State Folklore Society and town historian of Woodstock.
