About the Book
A pictorial look back at a special time in a special place, a social history of the 1970s counterculture on the Mendocino Coast of northern California, with 160 pages and over 180 documentary photos. The limited first edition was sold out a week after release, becoming an instant rare book. The current First Revised Edition is the same book with a few errors and omissions corrected.
"...Nicholas Wilson brings that era to blazing life once more. It's time travel at its funniest and most poignant.... Reading 'Mendocino In the Seventies' is a bittersweet visit to a time we imagined could last forever, but was gone in the space of a decade or so. ... If you can find a copy ... by all means grab it." -- Tony Miksak in Words On Books
