The intrepid hippie wanderer is itching to get back on the road. His final week at the kibbutz is coming to an end. Six weeks have flown right by at the communal settlement. Stevie takes one last ride on Clyde the Camel, then unloads hundreds and hundreds of baby chicks into the chicken shack, and then the finality of the good-bye parties and camaraderie with others. It’s off to the road in a Dutch Daf with three other volunteers from the kibbutz. Down to ancient Jericho, passing an abandoned Arab village on the way, then onto Jerusalem, land of world spirituality–Jews, Christ, Islam–and a floating swim in the Dead Sea. Come join in the continuous saga of the wanderer, “Stevie Wander” from 50-years ago today!
Co-author Steve Reifman celebrates the 50th anniversary of the ultimate hippy trail journey. His adventure, the inspiration for the book Wanderer co-written with F.T. Burke, took him across four continents through 26 countries in 1970-1971. Now, on the Golden Anniversary of his adventure, Steve Reifman – or “Stevie Wander,” as he likes to be called – tells the true tales behind the story.
