Product description

Subtitled "Glastonbury's alternative community 1970 to 2000 and beyond" this book takes over from its predecessor "The Avalonians" by Patrick Benham. It covers life and special events in Glastonbury from the days of the hippies up to the 1999/2000 procession up to the Tor led by the millennium phoenix. As with many small country towns, Glastonbury's traditional market economy has all but disappeared. What has replaced it, however, is very different from anything that has happened elsewhere. This change has been a fascinating process, full of side-plots and sub-plots, struggles, conflicts, excitement and fun. It is chronicled here by someone who has taken part in much of it and who remains enthusiastic - after 40 years - about the on-going results of what has happened. Events and organisations described include the Glastonbury Green Man Gatherings, the Rifleman's Arms as a focus for the community, the Goddess Conference and the influence of drugs.

This soft cove book is in good condition, with some scuffing to the edges of the cover. Inside it is clean and legible.
