From Publishers Weekly:

Lee was 20, and a year short of graduating with the class of 1967 at the University of California at Berkeley, when she "made a choice for the wider classroom this year." Hitchhiking up the Pacific coast in search of enlightenment and spiritual fulfillment, she teams up with Richard, another "flower child." As newlyweds they embark on an idealistic venture aimed at home steading in Alaska. Based on journal entries made at the time, this account of their emergence from counterculture adolescence and drug-induced euphoria follows the wandering couple on a route that leads to home and total commitment to Christianity. Their pas sage from moral confusion to anchoring faith is recounted with the inspirational verve that made bestsellers of Lee's Walking Through the Fire and Mourning into Dancing. Illustrated by the author. Major ad/promo.

From Library Journal:

Lee's newest journal narrative is set in the Sixties when, a marijuana devotee and Berkeley dropout, she met and married her first husband. We know from Signs of Spring ( LJ 2/15/80) that later he would abandon her and their children when she became ill with Hodgkin's disease, so a discernible shadow falls over this account of their courtship and first year together, underlining subtle clues to the future. Yet mainly this is a whimsical, endearing tale. Lee's prose and drawings are evocative and moving, as always, and the characterization of husband Richard is more complex than her usual portraits of men, especially compared with Mourning into Dancing ( LJ 8/84). For new readers, a lovely introduction to Lee's special magic: for old friends, a treat and a surprise. Elise Chase, Forbes Lib., Northampton, Mass.
