Naked in the Woods

My Unexpected Years in a Hippie Commune

Oregon State University Press

In the early 1970s, Margaret Grundstein abandoned her graduate degree at Yale and followed her husband to start a new life in a commune in the backwoods of Oregon. Naked in the Woods: My Five Years in a Hippie Commune, chronicles her shift from reluctant hippie to committed utopian. While many have romantic notions about the era, Grundstein’s account is an unflinching, authentic portrayal. This is a portrait of a singular time in North American history, yet Grundstein’s questions are timeless: how far out must we venture, and can we escape the world that’s shaped our lives?

Margaret Grundstein is a photographer, a psychotherapist in private practice, and the owner/director of a preschool in Venice, California. She has a Masters in Urban Planning from Yale University. This is her first book.
