Notes

Description
With his girlfriend away, eighteen-year-old Lucas Baker's only plans for the summer are to mellow out with his friends, smoke weed, drop a tab or two, and head out in his microbus for a three-day happening called the Woodstock Music and Art Fair. But life veers seriously off track when he suddenly finds himself in danger of being drafted and sent to fight in Vietnam. If that isn't heavy enough, there's also the free-loving (and undeniably alluring) Tinsley, who seems determined to test Lucas' resolve to stay faithful to his girlfriend; a frighteningly bad trip at a Led Zepplin concert; a run-in with an angry motorcycle gang; parents who appear headed for a divorce; and a friend on the front lines in Nam who's in mortal danger of not making it back. As the pressures grow, it's not long before Luca sfinds himself knocked so far down it's starting to look like up to him. When turning on, turning in, and dropping out is no longer enough, what else is there?
