About this title

Synopsis:

In 1970 hippy philosopher-teacher Stephen Gaskin adjourned his open, weekly meetings (referred to as Monday night class) and left San Francisco on a speaking tour of the U.S. He was accompanied by 250 students in a caravan of 50 buses and assorted campers. Together they traveled over 8,000 miles as Stephen spoke at colleges and churches about peace, love and understanding, and the changes that were sweeping the country. Here are the original transcripts of that historic journey along with Caravan meetings and Stephen's commentary from todays perspective.

About the Author:

In the 60s he was renknown as a "hippie guru."
