A TRILOGY OF NOVELS SET DURING THE
PREDAWN OF THE NEW AGE


HIPPIES

Book I: The Commune

In 1970, six hippies (Mary, Paul, Frank, Helen, Barbara, and Capo) unite to form a commune in Berkeley. It is a time of radical transformation of Western culture in general and of the United States culture in particular, and these personable, adventuresome, young explorers eagerly plunge into the waves of change. As intentional participants in "The Counterculture," they seek to find themselves, each other, and workable, loving alternatives to what was known then as "the alienation of modern man." Their successes and failures reveal much about where we have been, where we are, and where we are headed.

HOMESTEADERS

Book II: The Garden

In 1976, Helen and Capo travel to the rural Arkansas Ozarks where the other four are homesteading thirty acres so that Mary, who has become a midwife, may help Helen deliver her baby, Kevin. To the central themes of Book I - namely, interpersonal relationships, freedom and duty, the search for truth and self, and political action - are added and developed the themes of theology, ecology, and health.

YUPPIES

Book III: The Harmonic Convergence

At the bidding of Frank, the mystic among them, the group reunites again in August of 1987 to celebrate the Harmonic Convergence, two days of focal cosmic importance within the Mayan and Zapotec prophetic traditions. Although they focus on these and other end-of-the-age prophecies, as much or more about our human condition is revealed by the interaction of these six friends, who, by now, have matured from hippies into yuppies. This novel is only superficially comparable to the film, The Big Chill: the characters, plots, and themes are entirely different.
