Book Description for 1969 and Then Some:
1969 and Then Some is a memoir of the 60s and the influence of those years over the decades that followed. Romance, psychedelic insight and motorcycling evolve with the narrator maturity, such as it is, and non-compromise on morality and the undying spirit of adventure in nature.
While the 60s is often discounted or as ephemeral—as a social aberration—1969 & Then Some offers keen insight to lingering values that cannot be separated from significant segments of the most significant population group alive today, the baby boomers, many of whom still hold sway in key areas of social and cultural evolution.
Robert Wintner lives and works on Maui with his wife Anita, seven cats and Cookie the dog, who came in emaciated at 14 pounds, unable to stand. Cookie at 60 pounds raises a ruckus on the beach or in the living room in her continuing drive to make the world a happier place. The entire family eats well, stays fit and enjoys good health under blue skies.

I am a child of the eighties and my parents often talk about the sixties. There have been many talks about music, flower children and cars. This author did a great job of bringing the sixties to life. I felt like I traveled back in time and was able to feel the euphoria of the war being over. I also liked all the motorcycle lingo. This is definitely an era that will not be forgotten. I am giving this book a 4/5. I was given a copy to review, however all opinions are my own.
