40th Anniversary this year? Wow. Loved hearing your thoughts about this book — even though I now feel older than ever (I wanted to attend Woodstock, but it was too far from home, i.e., Hawaii). Will definitely put this on my must-read list. Thanks!

This looks great! I can’t wait to get it. We visit the Catskills every summer and love going into Woodstock, but my kids don’t know its history.
