Back to the Garden: The Story of Woodstock and How It Changed a Generation : For America's counterculture youth in 1969, Woodstock became a symbol of more than just sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll - it was about peace, love, and a new way of living. It was a seminal event that epitomized the ways that the culture, the country, and the core values of an entire generation were shifting. On one glorious weekend, this generation found its voice through music. Back to the Garden celebrates the spirit of Woodstock in the words of some of the era's biggest musical stars, as well as those who participated in the festival. From Richie Havens's legendary opening act t the Who's violent performance, from the Grateful Dead's jam to Jefferson Airplane's wake-up call, culminating in Jimi Hendrix's career-defining moment, renowned disc jockey Pete Fornatale brings new stories to light and sets the record straight on some common misperceptions. Illustrated with black-and-white photographs, Back to the Garden is the authoritative and highly entertaining history of three days of peace and music.
