     Ginny and Montana are students caught-up in campus turmoil at the University of California, Berkeley, during the 1960s nation-wide era of dissent.  It is a story of social misfits, troubled people scared in a dysfunctional childhood who drift together in the cause célèbre of the moment -- and there are plenty of causes for them to find:

            anti-authority sit-ins

            anti-Vietnam War marches

            draft card burnings

            Vatican Two church revolt

            civil rights turmoil

            grapepicker strike

            underground Weatherman

            martial law - street barricades

    Ginny and Montana and their fellow students had all these things on their plate -- on and off campus.  Ginny becomes the activist leader of the violent Weatherman organization and goes underground as a fugitive from the FBI.     Now, fifty years later, it is difficult to believe but many in our nation were engaged in an almost open revolt.  Names of people are fictional, but all the events are exactly as they happened.  I know, because I was there.
