Kamstra smuggled grass from Mexico throughout the early sixties. In 1966 he was arrested by U.S. Customs crossing into Arizona with 450 pounds, he was sentenced to two years (which was suspended). Later Kamstra was approached by Life Magazine, and asked to take a photographer into the heart of Mexican mountains. This volume is part travel narrative, part photo essay and part social history. Includes a glossary of all the groovy words.
