Remembering 1969 is the story of one mans search for personal spiritual growth during the transitional times of the 1960s. Robert Atkinson offers a beautifully written portrait of a defining, transformative year in his life and, in the process, tells the story of a generation in transition. Beginning on July 20, 1969, with Neil Armstrongs walk on the moon, Atkinsons journey merges with important events of the time, including Woodstock and the maiden voyage of the Hudson River sloop Clearwater. Atkinson works with Pete Seeger on the Clearwater, visits Arlo Guthrie at his home in the Berkshires, and serendipitously meets Joseph Campbell, who becomes an important mentor. Combines a wide range of cultural events and personal experiences. Forward by Stephen Larsen, author of several books, including, Fire in the Mind: The Life of Joseph Campbell.
