A journey to the past. A map for the future. After hitchhiking from Brazil to nearly halfway around the world, Paulo stumbles across Karla, a young Dutch woman and like-minded soul, in Amsterdam´s famous Dam Square. Together they decide to take the fabled hippie trail across Europe to Nepal, aboard the Magic Bus, in search of self-discovery. So begins a life-defining love story that will set the course for the rest of their lives. Drawing on the rich experience of his own life, Paulo Coelho relives the dreams of a generation that longed for peace and challenged the established social order.
Random House presents the audiobook edition of Hippie by Paulo Coelho, read by Graham Halstead.In Hippie, his most autobiographical novel to date, Paulo Coelho takes us back in time to relive the dream of a generation that longed for peace and dared to challenge the established social order - authoritarian politics, conservative modes of behaviour, excessive consumerism, and an unbalanced concentration of wealth and power. Following the ´three days of peace and music´ at Woodstock, the 1969 gathering in Bethel, NY that would change the world forever, hippie paradises began to emerge all around the world. In the Dam Square in Amsterdam, long-haired young people wearing vibrant clothes and burning incense could be found meditating, playing music and discussing sexual liberation, the expansion of consciousness and the search for an inner truth. They were a generation refusing to live the robotic and unquestioning life that their parents had known.At this time, Paulo is a young, skinny Brazilian with a goatee and long, flowing hair who wants to become a writer. He sets off on a journey in search of freedom and a deeper meaning for his life: first with a girlfriend on the famous ´Death Train to Bolivia´, then on to Peru and later hitchhiking through Chile and Argentina. His travels take him further, to the famous square in Amsterdam, where Paulo meets Karla, a Dutch woman also in her 20s. She convinces Paulo to join her on a trip to Nepal, aboard the Magic Bus that travels across Europe and Central Asia to Kathmandu. They embark on a journey in the company of fascinating fellow travellers, each of whom has a story to tell, and each of whom will undergo a transformation, changing their priorities and values along the way. As they travel together, Paulo and Karla explore their own relationship, an awakening on every level that brings each of them to a choice and a decision that sets the course for their lives thereafter. 1.

An enlightening narrative history - an entertaining fusion of Tom Wolfe and Michael Pollan - that traces the colorful origins of once unconventional foods and the diverse fringe movements, charismatic gurus, and counterculture elements that brought them to the mainstream and created a distinctly American cuisine. Food writer Jonathan Kauffman journeys back more than half a century - to the 1960s and 1970s - to tell the story of how a coterie of unusual men and women embraced an alternative lifestyle that would ultimately change how modern Americans eat. Impeccably researched, Hippie Food chronicles how the longhairs, revolutionaries, and back-to-the-landers rejected the square establishment of President Richard Nixon´s America and turned to a more idealistic and wholesome communal way of life and food. From the mystical rock-and-roll cult known as the Source Family and its legendary vegetarian restaurant in Hollywood to the Diggers´ brown bread in the Summer of Love to the rise of the co-op and the origins of the organic food craze, Kauffman reveals how today´s quotidian whole-foods staples - including sprouts, tofu, yogurt, brown rice, and whole-grain bread - were introduced and eventually became part of our diets. From coast to coast, through Oregon, Texas, Tennessee, Minnesota, Michigan, Massachusetts, and Vermont, Kauffman tracks hippie food´s journey from niche oddity to a cuisine that hit every corner of this country. A slick mix of gonzo playfulness, evocative detail, skillful pacing, and elegant writing, Hippie Food is a lively, engaging, and informative listen that deepens our understanding of our culture and our lives today. 1.

In 1969 Michael Lydon, a founding editor of Rolling Stone and a leading member of rock writing´s first generation, got a dream assignment: to cover the Rolling Stones´ hopscotch tour across America that ended at Altamont. His long, intimate piece on the tour, The Rolling Stones Discover America, captures the highs and lows of the grueling tour and has become a classic of rock ´n´ roll journalism - one that the Maysles brothers studied to guide the editing of their film, Gimme Shelter. Nobody used the term ´´embedded reporter´´ in those days, but that´s how Lydon lived on the tour, staying in the Stones´ HQ house above LA´s Sunset Strip and in suites at New York´s Plaza Hotel, flying in private jets to Dallas, Chicago, Philadelphia, and Boston, gambling in Las Vegas, hanging out backstage at the LA Forum and Manhattan´s Madison Square Garden, smoking pot with ´´The Boys´´ in late night bull sessions, and night after night digging the overpowering, sensuous, and beautiful music. ´´This was the peak of my rock ´n´ roll reporting career,´´ Lydon has said. ´´I knew I was where every hippie in America wanted to be, and I jumped into the tour with my eyes and ears wide open, a big grin on my mug.´´ In The Rolling Stones Discover America, Lydon also describes his own nervousness living so close to stardom. ´´The Stones were good guys and hardworking musicians,´´ he says, ´´but they were the sun kings of the tour universe. The rest of us were minor planets spinning about them in fixed and distant orbits. It´s a miracle I managed to keep my feet on the ground, keep taking notes, and get the story down on paper - but I´m glad I did.´´ 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael Lydon.

At the start of the 21st century, America was awash in a sea of evangelical talk. The Purpose Driven Life. Joel Osteen. The Left Behind novels. George W. Bush. Evangelicalism had become so powerful and pervasive that political scientist Alan Wolfe wrote of ´´a sense in which we are all evangelicals now.´´ Steven P. Miller offers a dramatically different perspective: The Bush years, he argues, did not mark the pinnacle of evangelical influence, but rather the beginning of its decline. The Age of Evangelicalism chronicles the place and meaning of evangelical Christianity in America since 1970, a period Miller defines as America´s ´´born-again years´´. This was a time of evangelical scares, born-again spectacles, and battles over faith in the public square. From the Jesus chic of the 1970s to the satanism panic of the 1980s, the culture wars of the 1990s, and the faith-based vogue of the early 2000s, evangelicalism expanded beyond churches and entered the mainstream in ways both subtly and obviously influential. Born-again Christianity permeated nearly every area of American life. It was broad enough to encompass Hal Lindsey´s doomsday prophecies and Marabel Morgan´s sex advice, Jerry Falwell and Jimmy Carter. It made an unlikely convert of Bob Dylan and an unlikely president of a divorced Hollywood actor. As Miller shows, evangelicalism influenced not only its devotees but its many detractors: religious conservatives, secular liberals, and just about everyone in between. The Age of Evangelicalism contained multitudes: it was the age of Christian hippies and the ´´silent majority,´´ of Footloose and The Passion of the Christ, of Tammy Faye Bakker the disgraced televangelist and Tammy Faye Messner the gay icon. Barack Obama was as much a part of it as Billy Graham. The Age of Evangelicalism tells the captivating story of how born-again Christianity shaped the cultural and political climate in which milli 1.

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.
