College Town is a story of campus life a long long time ago: the epic story of Faust, with a touch of bitter-sweet love, just enough to melt hard hearts. All the while, the country was in the throes of a movement never recorded in its history. Protest marches against establishment values captured the imagination of the young: sex, drugs, rock n' roll ruled the day. Folk-music lyrics challenged a nation suffering under hardened conservatives. The Nifty Fifties died a natural death. Hippies now roamed the land in bright colored vans painted with peace signs, hearts, and flowers. Society was integrated as never before. America became the melting-pot it had always claimed to be but never was. By sheer magnitude of numbers, the children of flower-power took over the land and led an assault against narrow-minded hypocrisy, out-of-touch politicians, arrogant antiquated law, as a new sense of responsibility marched upon the shoulders of in-your-face educated youths: flashing peace signs, wearing the colorful headbands of their new counterculture, and yes, smoking pot in public defiance. Times had changed, and led to the mantra, "Change is the word." At its core, College Town is a maturation story of young college students and young married couples everywhere--trying to get degrees, make a living, and raise kids at the same time. The fact America came of age and the old order was overcome during that time is more than a footnote to history. College Town was where it all began. Follow Herr Doktor Faust, students Wagner and Maggie, Ring and Lily, Chinaman and Rachel Hightower, and a cast of characters who take readers on a romp into our past--not to be missed.

From the Author:

Wagner and Maggie are the eternal young lovers who take years to figure it out. Their moment of growing up occurred during one of the momentous occasions in US history, when hippies took over our nation with their peace signs, bright-colored buses, flower power, love and doves. The story of professor Faust rounds out this epic novel. This well-plotted story will keep you surprised throughout.  Headbands were the rage, and folk-music lyrics created a change in the way America thinks, and is still with us today. Live campus life from that era as though you were there.
