Far Out

My Life on the Edge

by Rick Sterry

Book Image Not Available
Overview
Rick Sterry grew up near the Canadian border in north central Montana and ranked fourth academically in his high school class of six. Following graduation he left for Southern California, confident that he would be discovered as the next James Dean. When those dreams failed to materialize, he worked his way through college and won a Woodrow Wilson Fellowship to graduate school. While still a student, he published a widely reviewed novel, Over The Fence. He was a visiting professor at a university in Japan, writing his Ph.D. dissertation on Transcendentalism, when a packet of powder arrived in the mail which changed everything: LSD. Far Out is the witty, insightful and unflinching account of how Rick Sterry dropped out in the sixties to live off the grid for thirteen years with his wife and sons on an (almost) self-sustaining farmstead. It tells again the useful tale that while life doesn't always give us what we want, it often gives us just what we need.
