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.

Along the way, we are privy to his strange, twisted days as editor in chief of National Lampoon, as well as the in-depth looks at appropriate sports for middle-aged Republicans, namely those which can be engaged in with a smuggled Havana between the teeth - fly-fishing, bird hunting, deep-sea fishing, and of course, golf. Plus, you´ll hear O´Rourke´s take on the Virtues of Automobiles - because what good was oil doing sitting in the ground for millions of years? - and many other hilarious rants in this off-the-wall collection by America´s premier political humorist. 1.

In the 1960s, youth was the watchword, and skirts became shorter and shorter with the advent of the mini. However, toward the end of the decade, hems dropped and the hippie movement introduced bright colors and psychedelic patterns. The Fashion Sourcebook
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.

Deep in a wood in the Marches of Wales, in an ancient school bus there lives an old man called Bob Rowberry. A Hero for High Times is the story of how he ended up in this broken-down bus. It´s also the story of his times, and the ideas that shaped him. It´s a story of why you know your birth sign, why you have friends called Willow, why sex and drugs and rock?n?roll once mattered more than money, why dance music stopped the New-Age Travellers from travelling, and why you need to think twice before taking the brown acid. It´s the story of the hippies for those who weren´t there ? for Younger Readers who´ve never heard of the Aldermaston marches, Oz , the Angry Brigade, the Divine Light Mission, Sniffin´ Glue , Operation Julie, John Seymour, John Michell, Greenham Common, the Battle of the Beanfield, but who want to understand their grandparents? stories of turning on, tuning in and not quite dropping out before they are gone for ever. It´s for Younger Readers who want to know how to build a bender, make poppy tea, and throw the I-Ching. And it´s a story of friendship between two men, one who did things, and one who thought about things, between theory and practice, between a hippie and a punk, between two gentlemen, no longer in the first flush of youth, who still believe in love.
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.

When Deputy Sam Brooks commits to something, nothing can sway him - not just on the job as liaison between the Mercy Falls sheriff´s department and PEAK Rescue but in his private life. He´s the one who stuck around to take care of his mother after his father´s accidental death. And he´s the one - perhaps the only one - who believes Sierra Rose is the perfect girl for him. Safe, practical, and organized, she´s nothing like her hippie, impulsive, bleeding heart sister, Willow. Willow, however, has been in love with Sam Brooks for as long as she can remember. But she wants her sister to have a happy ending. Besides, Willow has other things to focus on - namely, nabbing the job as youth pastor for her small-town church. Best thing for her to do is to purge Sam from her heart. Neither can predict the events that will bring them together in a fight for their lives in the forbidding wilderness of Glacier National Park.

The harrowing saga of the last of a loving family cursed over the years by a progressively destructive community legend or by a piece of land in the Missouri Ozarks that is haunted by some evil first revealed through a childhood vision. The Legend of the Albino Farm is a horror story turned inside out. What if a thriving family were saddled with an unshakable spook tale? And what if that lore cursed them with an unending whirlwind of destruction from thrill seekers, partiers, bikers, and goths? Hettienne Sheehy is about to inherit this devouring legacy. Last child to bear a once golden name, she is heiress to a sprawling farm in the Missouri Ozarks. During summer, childhood idylls in the late 1940s, Hettienne has foreseen all this apocalyptic fury in frightening, mystifying visions. Haunted by a whirling augury, by a hurtful spook tale, and by a property that seems to doom all who would dare own it, in the end, Hettienne will risk everything to save the family she truly loves. The legend has haunted two generations of Sheehys and marred all memory of the family´s glory days. Worse, this spooky lore now draws revelers, druggies, motorcycle gangs, hippies, and later goths to trample the land, set bonfires, and vandalize its structures, all while Hettienne´s aged aunts cling to privacy, sanity, and a rapidly deteriorating 13-room mansion. From her youth, throughout her marriage and her rearing of her children, the curse of the Sheehys drags at her and her family like a vortex. Haunted by a whirling augury, by a hurtful spook tale, and by a relentlessly judgmental Ozarks city, in the end, Hettienne believes she must make decisions that might compromise her family´s financial security but will severe them from an ever more dangerous legacy. 1.

The Jesus People movement was a unique combination of the hippie counterculture and evangelical Christianity. It first appeared in the famed ´´Summer of Love´´ of 1967, in San Francisco´s Haight-Ashbury district, and spread like wildfire in Southern California and beyond, to cities like Seattle, Atlanta, and Milwaukee. In 1971 the growing movement found its way into the national media spotlight and gained momentum, attracting a huge new following among evangelical church youth, who enthusiastically adopted the Jesus People persona as their own. Within a few years, however, the movement disappeared and was largely forgotten by everyone but those who had filled its ranks. God´s Forever Family argues that the Jesus People movement was one of the most important American religious movements of the second half of the 20th-century. Not only do such new and burgeoning evangelical groups as Calvary Chapel and the Vineyard trace back to the Jesus People, but the movement paved the way for the huge Contemporary Christian Music industry and the rise of ´´Praise Music´´ in the nation´s churches. More significantly, it revolutionized evangelicals´ relationship with youth and popular culture. Larry Eskridge makes the case that the Jesus People movement not only helped create a resurgent evangelicalism but must be considered one of the formative powers that shaped American youth in the late 1960s and 1970s.
