It was a high time in Northern New Mexico. In the late 1960s and early 70s hippies in flowered buses and VW vans rolled into Taos, mostly city kids trying to "get back to the garden." The dismayed locals called it "the hippie invasion."This is the story of two writers who found each other in the maelstrom of the commune days. Jim Levy was breaking up with his wife Deirdre, who later became Pema Chdrn, a Buddhist nun whose books became bestsellers. Phaedra Greenwood discovered she was pregnant while living in a tool shed at forty below zero. Eventually, Jim and Phaedra settled down in an old adobe outside a small Hispanic village to raise a family. These were the golden days, but the times were a-changing. The womens movement swept in; Three Mile Island sparked No Nukes demonstrations and Watergate proved that you cant trust authority. It was time for Jim and Phaedra to test themselves in the world.A surprisingly honest and moving remembrance of the cultural upheavals in northern New Mexico in the 1970s." Bob Bishop and Bonnie Korman"In Those Were the Days, two gifted and insightful writers reveal how, against all odds, they forge a loving relationship amidst the turbulent zeitgeist of Taos counterculture." Michelle Potter .
