"Reflections of a Born-Again Pagan Radical evokes the powerful revolutionary spirit of the '60's."
-Kedron Bryson, Baytree Press
Jenny and Noces meet as students at the University of Southern California. They fall in love during a psychedelic pilgrimage to Mexico. Inspired by the profound socio-political upheaval of the 1960's, they shed their conservative backgrounds and plunge into the growing transnational counterculture, joining forces in rejecting the American system and building one of their own. Roving throughout North America, Western Europe, Mexico, Morocco, Jamaica and Nicaragua, the gutsy pair create an enterprise trading in psychedelics and enlightening herbs, while establishing their own radical political network.
Opening themselves to totally new dimensions of mystical awareness, Jenny and Noces celebrate the magic, ecstasy and wonder of life. Exercising the social responsibility that accompanies enlightenment, they find themselves on the frontlines, battling riot police during the 1968 Democrat Convention in Chicago and the May Day 1971 take-over of the Washington Monument, and supporting the national student strike protesting Nixon's Cambodia invasion; in Mexico City, they're attacked by paramilitaries in a squatter settlement; finally, in Nicaragua, they end up joining armed revolutionaries in an assault on a military command center.
While presenting a fascinating era in vivid detail, Reflections of a Born-Again Pagan Radical delivers urgent, timeless truths.
