Summary

This collection contains fifty stories written by people who attended the original Woodstock Festival in 1969. Since all the books that preceded it have focused on the musicians, promoters, and staff, this book will be the first one that chronicles the audience’s experience in an up close and personal way. This book documents the event itself, but also provides a mesmerizing portrait of America as that tumultuous decade came to a close. It is nostalgic, historical, and a fascinating read that will appeal to all Baby Boomers, their offspring, and anyone who wonders what it was really like—and what became of all those hippies.”

Author Biography

Susan Reynolds (despite her rather conservative exterior) happily joined the throngs of young people congregating at Woodstock-an event that shaped her life and her generation. She went on to become a professional writer and editor for more than twenty-five years, authoring five nonfiction books and editing five others. Ms. Reynolds lives in Boston, MA, and is currently the editor of Adams Media's new Hero series.
