From the rear cover of the 1990 edition:
"Hippie spiritual teacher Stephen Gaskin mesmerized flower children weekly at the Family Dog Auditorium in San Francisco when he talked of tripping and taught hippie values during the weekly 'Monday Night Class'. Stephen hosted three outrageous acid tripping parties on top of Mt. Tamp when LSD was still legal on certain government lands. Stephen and his cohorts set off in 50 painted buses to find the land, where they founded 'The Farm' an alternative lifestyle community that has continued for over 30 years. In Amazing Dope Tales Stephen tells his experiences with psychedelics, telepathy, and magic in brief compelling stories. He explores the flowering of new age spirituality and the dangerous transformational powers of psychedelics."
