Biographical information about my life in the USA

spiritual, sexual, racial, and political

an amazing autobiography of younger days spent in the eye of the colorful 1960s

America in the 1960s was a hotbed of cultural and intellectual ferment—spiritual, sexual, racial, and political. Wolf-Dieter Storl, whose family immigrated to the United States from a Germany ravaged by the Second World War, experienced this upheaval firsthand. Trying his luck at a surprising array of careers and experimenting with different lifestyles, he crossed paths with hillbillies, hobos, bikers, hippies, scholars, spiritualists, Black Panthers, student revolutionaries, smut peddlers, perverts, and psychedelic explorers—just to name a few.
Through the candidly personal lens of a budding cultural anthropologist and ethnobotanist, Storl relates these encounters with a refreshingly nuanced perspective. Unlike most books about the sixties, Far Out in America steers clear of overly romanticized nostalgia and the moralizing hand-wringing of cultural conservatives. It is a vivid portrait of a country that is neither what its detractors, nor its defenders, imagine it to be. For Storl, a social outsider who sampled freely from everything this acid-drenched era had to offer, the strangest trip of all was the American experience itself.
