It is the seventies, at the height of flower power. Star has just joined Drop City, a hippie commune in sunny California living the simple, natural life. But underneath the drugs, music and transcendent bliss, she slowly discovers tensions and sexual rivalries that threaten to split the community apart. A world away in Boynton, a tiny town in the interior of Alaska, Sess Harder, a pioneer who actually does live off the land, hunting, trapping and fishing, yearns for someone to share the harsh winters with him. When the authorities threaten to close down Drop City, the hippies abandon camp and head up north to Alaska, the last frontier. But neither they nor the inhabitants of Boynton are completely prepared for each other - and as the two communities collide, unexpected friendships and dangerous enmities are born.

'Boyle's riveting new novel lays bare the raw reality behind the city-dweller's romantic dream of living at one with nature' The Times 'TC Boyle's doorstop of a book will have you rushing to bed early to find out what happens next ... a gripping book and a timely reminder of the sexism at the heart of the hippy movement' Good Housekeeping
