9781550545340: The Georgia Straight: What the Hell Happened

Call it counterculture, underground, or alternative, what the Georgia Straight represents is a free press. Perhaps because of that, it has survived legal harassment, internal strife, and cutthroat competition to emerge as a a mainstay of the Vancouver media. What the Hell Happened? documents the Straight's story from its birth in the hippie heyday to its present award-winning (but still irreverent) status, through excerpts from its pages and an introduction by veteran Straight contributor Terry Glavin. The Straight is now North America's sole surviving independently owned "underground" newspaper from the '60s. Its distinct voice has provided more than just the news that other papers see fit to print. What the Hell Happened? delivers examples of that voice, from the Summer of Love to the present, and offers a nostalgic look at the changing face of Vancouver. --- from book's back cover
