Yvonne Daley moved to Vermont in 1967 as part of the counterculture movement and later became an award-winning journalist for the Boston Globe, Rutland Herald, Washington Post and other publications. Her newest book, Going Up the Country: When the Hippies, Dreamers, Freaks and Radicals Moved to Vermont, explores how thousands of young migrants like her, largely from cities and suburbs of New York and Massachusetts, turned their backs on the establishment of the 1950s and moved to Vermont, spawning a revolution in lifestyle, politics, farming, sexuality, and business practices that had a profound impact on the state and the nation. Part oral history, part nostalgia-tinged narrative, and part clear-eyed analysis, Yvonne’s book shows how this generation impacted Vermont while Vermont and Vermonters transformed the newcomers. Beyond Bernie Sanders and Ben and Jerry, the 100-plus people profiled in the book illustrate the maturation of a movement begun fifty years ago. An amazing trip indeed.
