Nonnie Thompson's book, Time It Was: Memoir of a Modern Pioneer, has been published by Bay Tree Publishing. This is her first book, after sixty published articles and photos in national, and regional, magazines. It's now available on her website and on Amazon.
Synopsis: On an icy Rocky Mountain highway, the winter sun was setting on a teenaged girl hitchhiking alone. Nonnie Thompson had run away from her parents' home yearning for the freedom and wildness of a pioneer wagon train. Fortunately for her, she was coming of age in the 1970s amidst a cultural revolution. By that evening she found the new life she was looking for in a Colorado commune, surrounded by a group of people who shared her ideals. Time It Was captures the youthful enthusiasm of those years while tracing the joys and sorrows of a woman who lived them deeply.
"Nonnie Thompson's voice rings true. Her story is just about as genuine as they come."
Bob Weir, founding member of the Grateful Dead
"Nonnie Thompson is such a natural writer, reading this tome will make you feel as though she is sitting beside you, describing her adventures from up close. I found myself absorbed, entertained, and also gently thrown back to that expansive era, when everything good seemed possible, and living itself seemed infinite."
Mollie Katzen, author of the Moosewood Cookbook
"This sweet book takes you, dear reader, far far out and off the grid, where concrete crumbles into wilderness. Here log cabins and tipis hold pioneering hippie folk to rock 'n' roll among the hard times and rainbows of their lives."
Wavy Gravy, co-founder of the SEVA Foundation, counter-culture peace activist Associated website
