About the Book
Horse-Drawn Yogurt: Stories from Total Loss Farm (Green Writers Press, 2017) is a patchwork of true stories of a young man’s life on a Vermont farm commune at the height of the back-to-the-land movement. In 1969, the author moved to Vermont. Soon after, he turned all the communal living, eating, smoking, dancing, loving, and farming into fantasy fiction in his first novel Burnt Toast (Alfred A. Knopf, 1972). Horse-Drawn Yogurt is Gould's first nonfiction. You’ll learn how locals and newcomers helped each other out in a pivotal moment of history. You'll find out how young people, new to the land, learned how to tend gardens, animals, and fields, while belonging to a national movement against the Vietnam war and for peace and justice around the world.
