Product Description

Product Description

During college, Ben Starosta had done volunteer work in a small community in Costa Rica. Later, he returns, thinking he can help the people more through other means. He introduces them to guerrilla growing, clandestine outdoor marijuana cultivation, and as the pot's shipped to the United States for top dollar, the community's prospering. However, the C.I.A. soon catches wind and heads down for a look around.

Enter T.A. Sedlak’s stunningly vivid portrait of Latin America. A world of iridescent birds, fruit farmers, tight pantsed ticas, and piratas. Learn the meaning of Pura Vida, the importance of hockey bags, and what goes on at the infamous Hotel Del Rey. Sit back, turn on the Volcano, and learn for yourself where Anarcho Grow will lead.

"Anarcho Grow is an engaging story of love, political intrigue and utopian hopes. It is eminently readable and emotionally compelling." — Howard Zinn

"Anarcho Grow is a gripping and entertaining novel of Latin America, highly recommended."— The Midwest Book Review

"T.A. Sedlak's Anarcho Grow is the best marijuana adventure novel since T. C. Boyle's Budding Prospects... a quick, compelling read."— Steve Bloom, former editor of High Times and current editor of CelebStoner.ocm

HASH(0xa153a6b4) out of 5 stars Potgrowing Expats ... you know the tale... Oct. 17 2013

Sure has a 'first novel' feel to it. I don't get the feeling that Sedlak is much of a writer, but he has an interesting tale to tell. Plus, the xray vision of what Costa Rica is like for many expats and 'viejos verdes' is pretty right on.
