The American Chronicles, Book 9 of 9

by Robert Vaughan

The 1960’s have gone down in history as a decade of social and political upheavals, when Americans grappled with the moral dilemmas and social divisions caused by the Vietnam war, the struggle for civil rights, and the radicalism of the nation’s youth. In the ninth volume of Robert Vaughan’s stunning AMERICAN CHRONICLES, a panoramic picture of the American experience unfolds from the perspective of Americans from all walks of life.Cocky and charismatic Bob Parker courts death every day, piloting a chopper in Vietnam. Living each day as though it is his last, he parties recklessly and fights furiously, determined to make it through the war and return home. Heiress Tina Canfield wants only to escape the confines of her wealthy, prominent and conservative family. She longs to join the throngs of young people tuning in, turning on and dropping out. When Tina runs away to join the summer of love in San Francisco, she is unprepared for the heartbreak that freedom can sometimes bring. African-American vet Andrew Jackson finds himself a changed man after a long tour of duty in the US Army. He is as yet unaware of the enormous changes that have occurred at home in the South, as protests and violence explode in the streets of Alabama.
