This article in the Bangor Daily News does an amazing job describing what happened in Central Maine (both inland and near the coast) in the late ’70s and how the Back to the Land movement has changed the entire state. I became friends with many of the children who grew up in this culture, and their lives and experiences have had a profound impact on me. If you do anything today, please read this article and watch the footage. It is amazing.
