North Mountain Hippies
It's been about forty years since a wave of - mostly American - young people came up to live in the woods of Atlantic Canada.
They settled in remote parts of PEI, New Brunwsick,...and on the North Mountain in Nova Scotia.
They came to get away from a government they'd lost faith in, a war they didn't believe in, and a society they felt had grown too commercial.
This past summer, Maritime Magazine host Pauline Dakin attended a reunion of the North Mountain Community....group of former "Back to the landers" who had lived there communal style in the 1970s.
