"It wasn't hard to leave: Nixon, the Vietnam War, the Bomb... it's fair to say that I was interested in Indian things... but I knew very little."

A Season in Heaven presents the true stories of travellers who hit the hippie trail in the late sixties. David Tomory, himself a veteran of the road to Kathmandu, interviewed a group of travellers who went looking for enlightenment and discovered a world that changed their lives.

In Iran and Afghanistan, in Indian ashrams, mountain villages and dubious hotels, a generation of young people got hip, got busted, lost their luggage, and sometimes even found themselves. A Season in Heaven travels with the Americans, Europeans and others who took the trip overland from Europe to India, Pakistan and Nepal.

By turns funny and fascinating, spiritual and sensual, their experiences reflect one of the most significant and rarely described social movements of recent times. A Season in Heaven will stir the memories of those who went, and reveals the attraction for those who wish they had.
