Lost Sheep: Aspen's Counterculture in the 1970s


Starting at: $14.99

by Kurt Brown

Welcome to the Pleasure Slum!
Lost Sheep recounts Kurt Brown’s journey from the “real” world of 1970s America to the rollicking, freedom-loving, outlaw world of Aspen. Blending personal narrative, local history, dramatic interlude, and cultural analysis, the story begins as a literal journey but quickly evolves into the memoir of an entire town—a time and place many consider to be Aspen’s “Golden Age,” when artists, eccentrics, and outlaws took over the city and transformed it into an alpine bohemia. 

The noteworthy cast of characters—famous, infamous, and unknown—includes Claudine Longet, Jack Nicholson, Hunter S. Thompson, Steve Martin, and Ted Bundy. The local residents are even more colorful, from a woman who feeds her dog nothing but vegetables to a bookstore owner who believes in “psychic surgeries.” And everywhere, art is being made—along with a good deal of hay.
