Set against the rainy, muddy back drop known as the Woodstock '94 Music & Art Fair, Peace, Love n' Mud tells the not-so-classic story about a young boy, who despite hailing from a damaged family, must over come the insurmountable odds stacked against him. Don't let the name fool you, there's more to Peace, Love n' Mud than one could ever imagine. Sure, the back drop to this multifaceted read takes place in North Miami Beach, Florida, and Saugerties, New York, during the Woodstock '94 Music & Art Fair, where Kraig Geiger, the novel's author and protagonist, recounts this true story. Beginning generations ago, Kraig treats his readers to a thoughtful and insightful look at the "how's" and "why's" of his situation. Despite his continual attempts of finding love at home, Kraig endures a childhood filled with negativity. But don't despair--after all, Kraig doesn't. Instead, he finds and ultimately uses his passions along with an unwavering amount of persistence on his path to salvation. Peace, Love n' Mud is a book about strength, pain, loss, love, hope, faith, lust, music, art, belief, and beauty. Peace, Love n' Mud is for anyone who dares to dream, but is not afraid to live in reality.

On July 14th, 1963, Sharon Niman-Geiger gave birth to her first and only son, Kraig Steven Geiger. Raised from birth, in North Miami Beach, Florida, Kraig, his mother Sharon, father Paul Geiger, and his only sibling Tobi lived together until he reached the age of nine. At that time, Kraig's tumultuous home life took another turn for the worse, when his parents began divorce proceedings. The move would leave Kraig disenfranchised and heartbroken. His parents' divorce would make it that much tougher, yet imperative, for Kraig to find his calling or purpose in his life. On the evening of October 7th, 1978, at age fifteen, Kraig borrowed his father's camera, a Pentax K-1000, to photograph the very first rock n' roll concert he attended. For Kraig, that was the beginning point of what quickly grew into a passion, before blossoming into his calling as a concert photographer. On January 4th, 1994, the new word division of "Merriam Webster's Dictionary", and on February 14th, 2014, the new word division of "The Oxford Dictionary" officially recognized Kraig Geiger (by letters of file citation) for coining the word Contographer ®/i.e. concert photographer. In 1996, the United States Patent and Trademark Office awarded Kraig an official trademark to use the word Contographer ® in commerce. While credited for naming an industry with no prior professional moniker, through his unique trademark, Kraig has successfully found the key to distinguishing himself, along with his photographic works of art from photographers and concert photographers worldwide. Over the past 37 years, Kraig Geiger has captured more than 4,000 of the world's greatest musical recording artists, all on 35-mm film, at more than 1,200 concerts. Twenty-two years after making and keeping his promise, to himself, and to the future readers of Peace, Love n' Mud; Kraig looks forward to having the long ponytail that he's grown, cut off, shortly after the worldwide release of his book on August 1st, 2016.Review:
Author Kraig Geiger was only eight when he first caught a glimpse of his future, while in a movie theater, watching the original Woodstock Documentary movie: this event would eventually change the course of his life.
This isn't just the story of a young man's rise to fame in a challenging world; it's a story of serendipity and evolution, it's a love story, and ultimately it's a saga about how the author chose not to wallow under life's slings and arrows, but maintained a tight grip on his creativity by nurturing it to fruition.
