About the Series: A Nation of Mystics
In A Nation of Mystics, author Pamela Johnson deftly explores the youth subculture in San Francisco and Berkeley in the1960s, with all its initial goodwill and naiveté—its dedication to free speech, promise to end war, commitment to racial equality, new art and music, and the exploration of spirituality. In this epic story of intimacy, metaphysical growth, and coming of age, the Haight-Ashbury becomes home to genuine and unforgettable characters. Spanning the years 1965-1970, the trilogy transports readers to places in the United States, Mexico and South America, and to Afghanistan and India. Although set in the 1960s, A Nation of Mystics is strikingly relevant, addressing conflicts between political idealism and the old order, the true meaning of religion, elements in the development of culture, violent police overreach, and the beginning of America's War on Drugs.
