The time is the early 1980s. Judith Plant and her new partner, Kip, are ready for a change. Inspired by the charismatic Fred Brown, their communications professor at Simon Fraser University, they join a commune in a remote valley near the Yalakom River, deep in BC's Coast Mountains.

Join New Society Publishers' co-founder Judith Plant to hear an absorbing account of a young mother's struggles to reconcile her social ideals of personal and environmental responsibility, and loving and caring for those closest to her. From her new book, Culture Gap: Towards a New World in the Yalakom Valley.
