|A boy from the future
went to Woodstock...
While running from
a Juvenile Court-ordered group home in Portland, Oregon, in
1990, seventeen year-old Arien Danner is catapulted to another
time as the result of a freak electrical accident. And so
begins a tale of life in the Haight-Ashbury, a pivotal experience
of the People's Park Riots in Berkeley, and the adventures
of a cross-country road trip. The tale concludes at Bethel,
NY, the site of the legendary Woodstock Festival in 1969.
Within an exploration of the period are elements of coming-of-age,
finding love, communal life, and a mystery quest into New
Age and Native American magic and spirituality.
Though The Woodstock Paradox is fiction with a touch
of fantasy/sci-fi, it is well-researched and contains many
historically accurate details.
