Peter moved to Vermont in the back to the land movement and turned all the living, eating, smoking, dancing, and loving, and gardening into fiction: his first novel Burnt Toast (Alfred A. Knopf, 1972) brought all that together. His second novel Write Naked (Farrar, Straus & Giroux, 2009) won the National Green Earth Book Award for Young-Adult eco-fiction. Now, in Horse Drawn Yogurt, Gould has created a patchwork of true stories of farm life. In these stories you'll learn how locals and newcomers helped each other out in a pivotal moment of history, and how young people new to the land learned how to tend gardens and farms, while belonging to a national movement--against the Vietnam war and for peace and justice around the world.

    Wow. A journey back to what now seems like another planet. The author, Peter Gould, was one of the early members of Total Loss Farm, one of the more successful communes in rural Vermont. This is some of his musings from a time gone by. a more naïve, more innocent time. Wish we could go back.
