Ancient Acid Flashes Back is the true story of one who was there—--and remembers--—through the cloying marijuana haze, around the jagged edges of L.A. cross tops and crystal cranks, on wild windowpane trips, in the sweetness and sweat of tangled young bodies, in the stench of stale vomit and fresh garbage, in the raucous laughter of desperation and fear. In this remarkable collection of poems, Adrian Louis, a member of the Paiute tribe, beams us back to the Haight during the Summer of Love and beyond on an inimitable tour of the wild side of youth, freedom, and possibility.
  • Rolling Flipper
This Native-American take on the Summer of Love is a heartbreaker--and a surprisingly informative piece of sociological reporting. After all, the hippies looked to the Native Americans for myth and fashion; and to a young poet coming out of the Rez, the counter-culture offered a truer melting pot than red-neck Amerika ever did. But the streets of San Fran are still pretty mean, and there just ain't quite enough love to get to wherever it was Flower Power was headed. It comes down to individual lovers, as it does always and everywhere, to manifest and emanate Capital L Love, and this loosely narrative collection follows the hero as he loves and loses and loves again, the highs and lows fueled by LSD and mescaline searingly rendered.

this is a cycle of interrelated poems following the life and times of an amiable stoner named naatsi from his days on haight street in san francisco (circa mid-to-late 1960's) on up to south dakota and the clinton years. really these are miniature short stories, poetic vignettes that add up to a deep and satisfying portrait of an individual. nothing pretentious here at all (thank God). poetry that is enjoyable and moving, and actually about something. i highly recommend it.
  • Rocksmith
An exceptional trip down the stoned, yellow-brick road of memory. I was in San Francisco in the late 1960's and these poems brought it all back--yeah, it was a real flashback. The sadness and beauty of it all. If you were there, get this book. Peace.
