Ronald J. Schulz's New Book 'Spirit Quest 1969' is a Suburban Kid's Curious Exploration Into the 1969 Communes of America

'Ronald J. Schulz, a Seattle resident, and a member of Hugo House and the Seattle Writers Meetup Group, has completed his most recent book “Spirit Quest 1969”: a gripping and potent account of a young man who traded school for an exciting and eventful adventure in the Rocky Mountains.

Ronald writes, “Spirit Quest 1969: Tripping Through Lands of Enchantment, is the true tale of a disaffected suburban kid hitchhiking through western America to discover the counterculture communes in 1969.

"In 1969, when he was seventeen years old, Ronald dropped out of high school near Chicago to explore the counterculture in the Rocky Mountains. After taking a huge dose of LSD, he wandered into the Navajo reservation seeking supernatural visions, meeting missionaries and students of Indian lore. He joined a group marriage commune in Taos at the height of the Hippie-Chicano conflict. The domineering personalities he found in communal life disappointed him, but the concept of living together in non-monogamous families inspired him to continue working to improve the concept. Low on cash, Ron decided to return to the city to earn enough money to continue exploring the street scene and New Left world in Chicago and New York, which will soon appear as a follow-up book.”

Published by Fulton Books, Ronald J. Schulz’s book is a profound novel that introduces to the readers a kid who ventures into the counterculture communes across America.

In this book, we witness the different circumstances and people encounters he has in his lifetime.

Readers who wish to experience this excellent work can purchase “Spirit Quest 1969” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes Store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes & Noble.
