For three days in the summer of 1969, 500,000 people spontaneously gathered, bringing together peace, love and the greatest rock 'n' roll performers in history. Stunning sounds and aromatic smells wafted through the air, making this legendary event one that has never been duplicated. Barry Z Levine, a member of the Academy Award-winning "Woodstock" documentary film team, captured this entire event. Levine arrived days before the crowds when Woodstock was still a grassy pasture and continued to photograph long after the last person had departed the debris-strewn muddy field. Over the course of that tumultuous week, Levine took so many pictures, he had blisters on his index finger and thumb from clicking the shutter and advancing the film. Levine stopped only once, for a 45 minute nap on top of a piano cover that was on stage while Blood, Sweat & Tears performed. Along with the nearly 300 full-color photographs, the text by Linanne G. Sacket presents a chronological account of this historical event, capturing the performers, the personalities, the audience, the excitement, the mood, and the actions. "The Woodstock Story Book" is a must for anyone who was at Woodstock, wishes they had gone, or just wants a bird's eye view at the greatest historical event of the 1960s.

As part of the Academy Award-winning Woodstock documentary team, still photographer Barry Z Levine was there, and captured it all. Among other honors, Levine was recognized with a Lifetime Achievement Award by Italy's Biograf Film Festival where his photographs were featured on buses, street displays and giant illuminated outdoor billboards in Bologna, Milan, and Rome as well as in exhibitions at over one hundred La Feltrinelli bookstores. His photos are on covers of magazines, in books and in art galleries worldwide and the book provides a free coupon to redeem a full color 24x36" Woodstock Levine Poster. Mr Levine resides in Florida with his wife Linanne, and presents his work worldwide.Review:
