Product description


"The author is a highly skilled storyteller--he describes each scene and person so well that the reader feels he was actually present. The book itself is inviting with meaningful quotes at the beginning of each part, some artwork, and a few photographs. The dialogue is crisp and well-placed . . . The reader is engaged from the first page to the last. Mr. Israel notes that this book is the first of a series he is calling The Hippie Adventurer Series. Looking forward to the next one!" 5 STARS--Deborah Lloyd, Readers' Favorite

"Israel's flowing memoir . . . is well organized, recounting the laughs, the sensuality, the highs and the sometimes very real danger he indulged in without apparent residual regret or embarrassment. He was always ready to move to the next happening, loveliest or mountaintop trail, as befit the era and the ethos. With a sequel in the works, Groovin' is poised to attract a tuned-in readership of former (and current) hippies, and armchair '60s fans seeking a contact high." RECOMMENDED.--US Review of Books

"Readers seeking an evocative, 'you are there' feel to a series of often-zany 1960s encounters will relish the tone and presentation of Groovin', a saga of hippie days gone wild."--Diane Donovan, senior reviewer, Midwest Book Review

"Rich Israel has an engaging voice, a lively sense of humor, a quirky group of friends, and a thirst for adventure. Best of all, he knows how to tell a good yarn. Sit down, put up your feet, and start groovin'."--Rivvy Neshama, author of Recipes for a Sacred Life: True Stories and a Few Miracles

"Groovin' is a captivating read, full of fun, adventure, and spicy romance set in the spirited sixties. I wholeheartedly recommend adding it to your reading list."--Mitch Ditkoff, president of Idea Champions and author of Storytelling at Work

About the Author

Rich Israel was born in December 1945. The baby boomer generation officially began January 1, 1946, so he likes to say he was sent ahead as a scout to prepare the way. Raised in Sacramento, he spent his college years at the University of California, Davis, where he initially studied engineering, then transferred to biological sciences because of his love for nature. After graduation, he worked for the entomology department at the university for a year before dropping out and embarking on many of the adventures described in his writings. A half-decade later, he coauthored the first back-to-the-land book for his generation-Homesteader's Handbook-and went on to study natural medicine, releasing The Natural Pharmacy Product Guide in 1991. He is currently working on Trippin', the second book in his Hippie Adventurer Series, scheduled for release in the fall 2017. Rich lives with his wife, Doris, in Boulder, Colorado.
