Summary
In September 1970, ex-Harvard professor and 'High Priest of LSD' Dr. Timothy Leary escaped from prison with the aid of the radical Weather Underground. Spanning twenty-eight months, President Nixon's careening, global manhunt for Dr. Timothy Leary winds its way among homegrown radicals, European aristocrats, a Black Panther outpost in Algeria, an international arms dealer, hash-smuggling hippies from the Brotherhood of Eternal Love, and secret agents on four continents, culminating in one of the trippiest journeys through the American counterculture. -- Adapted from book jacket.
