In this intelligent memoir, Peter Coyote relives his ride through the heart of the counterculture--a journey that took him from the quiet rooms of privilege in New York to the riotous political street theater in San Francisco. Chronicling the revolutionary theories of the Diggers and the encampments of the extended Free Family, Coyote offers blunt and affectionate portraits of friends, lovers, and fellow travelers. In prose that is graphic and unsentimental, Coyote also reveals the corrosive side of love that was once called "free," the terror evoked by bikers who came on late-night visits looking for drugs, and Coyote's own quest for the next high. His road through revolution taught him to be a player and a strategist: from radical communard to the chairman of the California Arts Council; from a street theater apprentice to a motion-picture star. Sleeping Where I Fall pays honest tribute to the spiritual search of a generation that had become morally estranged from the dominant culture, a generation that transformed the politics--then the heart and soul--of America.
