"Salt Spring became a microcosm of the California experience; it evolved into the Canadian equivalent of the Haigh-Ashbury District of San Francisco and emerged as the trendy hub of Canadian subculture. As a teenager, although John Grain was certainly aware of momentous world events, he was totally unaware of their impact. Mod 'n Lavender: Salt Spring Island in the '60s takes the reader on an emotional voyage through Gulf Island life during this most memorable era. With a liberal sprinkling of revealing quotes from the local newspaper - the Gulf Islands Driftwood, John Grain helps the reader experience the transition of Salt Spring Island from what some once called the 'land that time forgot' into the innovative, eclectic and close-knit paradise that Salt Spring has become today"--Page 4 of cover.
