Join host Chris Lenois as he talks with author, artist and actor Peter Gould about his new book Horse-Drawn Yogurt: Stories from Total Loss Farm, a collection of true-life stories of a young man’s life on a Vermont farm commune at the height of the back-to-the-land movement.

In 1969, author Peter Gould moved to Vermont. Soon after, he turned all the communal living, eating, smoking, dancing, loving, and farming into fiction in his first novel Burnt Toast (Alfred A. Knopf, 1972). Now, in Horse-Drawn Yogurt, Gould has created a patchwork of true stories of farm life. You’ll learn how locals and newcomers helped each other out in a pivotal moment of history. Find out how young people, new to the land, learned how to tend gardens, animals, and fields, while belonging to a national movement against the Vietnam war and for peace and justice around the world.
