In Howard Taylor, brother of Elizabeth, bailed out a rag-tag band o. . Taylor Camp was a small settlement established in the spring of on the island of Kauai, ISBN OCLC Excerpt from the book.

They found friends, lovers, brothers, and sisters. While some held steady jobs, others found work with the locals, who generally resented the mass hippie migration but also valued that the campers were willing to labor for small amounts of cash. The children rode the bus to the local school, and they had an in-house midwife and a medic returned from the war.

Food grew naturally all around them, and many were supported also by welfare and food stamps. When he visited on weekends, Wehrheim brought with him cucumbers and bananas, farmed fresh between the photography courses he taught at a local college.

Taylor Camp stood for eight years, until in it was razed to the ground. Although the evictions were delayed over a few years, most the campers were ultimately persuaded to abandon camp of their own volition, relocating to different parts of the island and country.

The few who stayed behind were robbed and beaten by local troublemakers until they were carted out by the authorities and every last remnant of the camp was burned.

A mother and her infant were among the few who remained until the end. These days, Wehrheim is a member of the Taylor Camp Facebook group, and he frequently reconnects with former residents, and in addition to the book, he has created a film to honor his friends from Taylor Camp.


While Wehrheim admits that he has moments of homesickness for Taylor Camp, he knows that it was never really his home to mourn. The people close to him had all left before the torch hit the ground.
