The Flower People
I was just a kid in 1968, but a few of those kids were at the local colleges in my town and I remember just being fascinated with the fashion, etc. 8 year old me wanted a fringe vest and boots SO BAD! Mom said no. (What a killjoy.)
Best part of this book was the hippie vocabulary. I can’t remember the last time I heard someone refer to the “fuzz”. I doubt anyone would have any trouble translating some of the sayings, but I am sure you will enjoy the explanations. Contemporary books of this time are some of my favorites. It is so funny to think that this group is now talking about Medicare and retirement. Can you dig it?
