The unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of Neil Young’s Waging Heavy Peace, the rock music memoir of the year. Read by Keith Carradine. ´´I felt that writing books fit me like a glove; I just started and I just kept going.´´ Neil Young is a singular figure in the history of rock and pop culture generally in the last four decades. Reflective, insightful, and disarmingly honest, in Waging Heavy Peace he writes about his life and career. From his youth in Canada to his crazy journey out to California, through Buffalo Springfield and Crosby, Stills, & Nash, to his massively successful solo career and his reemergence as the patron saint of grunge on to his role today as one of the last uncompromised and uncompromising survivors of rock & roll - this is Neil’s story told in his own words. In the book Young presents a kaleidoscopic view of personal life and musical creativity; it’s a journey that spans the snows of Ontario to the LSD-laden boulevards of 1966 Los Angeles to the contemplative paradise of Hawaii today. Along the way he writes about the music, the victims, the girls, and the drugs; about his happy family life but also about the health problems he and his children have experienced; about guitars, cars, and sound systems; about Canada and California and Hawaii. 1.

Adopted by a pair of diehard hippies, restless, marginal Jude Keffy-Horn spends much of his youth getting high with his best friend, Teddy, in their bucolic and deeply numbing Vermont town. But when Teddy dies of an overdose on the last day of 1987, Jude´s relationship with drugs and with his parents devolves to new extremes. Sent to live with his pot-dealing father in New York City´s East Village, Jude stumbles upon straight edge, an underground youth culture powered by the paradoxical aggression of hardcore punk and a righteous intolerance for drugs, meat, and sex. With Teddy´s half brother, Johnny, and their new friend, Eliza, Jude tries to honor Teddy´s memory through his militantly clean lifestyle. But his addiction to straight edge has its own dangerous consequences. While these teenagers battle to discover themselves, their parents struggle with this new generation´s radical reinterpretation of sex, drugs, and rock ´n´ roll, and their grown-up awareness of nature and nurture, brotherhood and loss. Moving back and forth between Vermont and New York City, Ten Thousand Saints is an emphatically observed story of a frayed tangle of family members brought painfully together by a death, then carried along in anticipation of a new and unexpected life. With empathy and masterful skill, Eleanor Henderson has conjured a rich portrait of the modern age and the struggles that unite and divide generations. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Steven Kaplan.

The Energy Caper, or Nixon in the Sky with Diamonds takes you on a merry romp with a band of twenty-something idealists looking for love and hoping to change the world in an alternate universe in which the Kennedys were not assassinated and the Vietnam War ended before it began. Joining in the fun are President Richard Nixon and Dr. Timothy Leary, the escaped convict Nixon calls ´´the most dangerous man in the world´´ for turning America´s youth into no-good hippies. Nixon is the same profane, venal S-O-B that made him such a hit in our universe, but here he is unleashed in a world where there was no Vietnam War to slow him down and Watergate is just a fancy hotel. Elected on a pledge to wage an unrelenting ´´war on drugs,´´ Nixon instead confronts a different kind of war: an energy war. The Arab oil embargo is driving the country toward a second Great Depression as motorists line up for hours to buy gasoline at any price. Desperate for alternatives to oil, Nixon learns of a plant which produces three times more biomass per acre than corn. America could farm its way to energy independence in just five short years. A secret weapon has dropped in Nixon´s lap, but he is shocked to learn that, under another name, the secret weapon which could defeat the oil cartel is a primary target of his War on Drugs. If he can lead America to energy independence by convincing conservatives to legalize cultivation of the plant Thomas Jefferson called ´´America´s most valuable crop´´ in the name of national security, the final spot on Mount Rushmore will be his. Nixon knows that only a law-and-order, hippie-bashing conservative like himself could hope to buck America´s richest families and most powerful corporations to pull off a caper this crazy. 1.

This memoir is the harrowing story of one mothers journey through the hell of her daughters heroin addiction. It is also a topical memoir that traces the social history of drug use from the youth culture of the 1960s to present time, and also examines public policy on drug abuse and its impact on our criminal justice system. The authors story begins as a young woman whose mother, an antiques dealer, was murdered in her upscale suburban antiques shop in 1968; 3 days after the Chicago Democratic Convention where cops and hippies clashed in a historic confrontation. Subsequently, the author emerged into the youth culture of the 60s, where rampant drug experimentation was the norm. Out of this chaos, the author then examines her personal history from that personal and social historic moment, leading to her subsequent marriage to an alcoholic, and then to the three children who were the offspring of that marriage. From the time her oldest daughter was a teenager her daughter exhibited addictive personality traits, culminating in a serious heroin addiction and consequent enmeshment in the criminal justice system. On the night of August 18, 2009, at 32 years of age, her daughter lost the battle to her addiction and died of a drug overdose. The suffering this addiction inflicted on her daughter, the family, and society at large is examined in an unflinching portrayal of the nefarious forces at work. Addiction is indeed a thief that steals a promising future from anyone who suffers from these compulsive behaviors, and it steals in an indiscriminate manner from all echelons of society. This moving story makes a brave attempt to understand solutions and treatments for drug addiction. Although the subject matter is gritty, the story is neither gloomy nor depressing, and may offer hope to families of addicts worldwide

What drives people to act in the most brutal ways? What could have caused a mother to eat her dead baby´s brain? What drove a seemingly normal teenager to kill a stranger and chew on their face? It is often difficult to comprehend what makes a person kill. But when they kill and then commit further acts of depravity on their victim, it gives a whole new meaning to wrongdoing. In volume three of the True Crime Stories series, we examine murderers who have all displayed the same gut-churning, wicked twist - each of them ate their victims. In Volume 3, we look at people such as: The hitchhiking hippie who carried human finger bones to chew on The New York teacher who killed a neighborhood boy and ate his body parts The Kansas City youth who became known as the Kansas City Vampire The deeply troubled man who cooked and ate his girlfriend after she dropped him The 450-pound cannibal who served his victim´s flesh to customers of his barbecue stand And others who were equally despicable.... Each of these violent killers is examined in detail, from their backgrounds, the crimes they committed, how they were brought to justice, and their sentencing. Get a copy of this fascinating audiobook today and prepare yourself to enter the world of those who committed the greatest taboo of all - the cannibal killers. 1. Language: English.

In late 1971 John Lennon left London behind and moved to New York, eager to join a youth movement rallying for social justice and an end to the Vietnam War. Lennon was quickly embraced by radicals and revolutionaries, the hippies and Yippies at odds with the establishment. Settling in Greenwich Village, the heart of Manhattan´s counterculture, the former Beatle was soon on the frontlines of the antiwar movement and championing a range of causes and issues. Seen as a savior by a generation in need of cultural heroes, Lennon was just as passionately hounded by a government eager to find enemies within. The FBI and White House considered Lennon a threat; a plan was devised to deport the singer prior to the election as a ´´strategic counter-measure´´ to preserve Richard Nixon´s presidency in 1972. The Walrus and the Elephants is told by an unlikely cast of friends, including the musicians of the Elephant´s Memory band, who were among the few with a chance to see the man behind the Beatle. Exclusive interviews include writer and feminist leader Gloria Steinem; congressional black caucus cofounder Ron Dellums; ´´Chicago Seven´´ veteran Rennie Davis; immigration attorney Leon Wildes; and legendary poet-activist John Sinclair, whose imprisonment for marijuana - a 10-year sentence for two joints - kicked off Lennon´s American journey. It was a busy year of making albums, controversial TV appearances, and what would be Lennon´s last full-length concert at Madison Square Garden; it was also a time of great change in America, with many of the confrontations that began brewing in the sixties reaching an end...and the beginning of a new era. John Lennon fought for peace and was treated with scorn by some, suspicion by others - including a government wishing to silence the singer. The Walrus and the Elephants is a look back by those who fought the fight. He was a dreamer, but not the only one. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Stephen Hoye.
