The Hippie Trail

A History

Sharif Gemie and Brian Ireland

Published by Manchester University Press

This is the first book to trace the history of the hippie trail, and those who travelled it. Based on interviews and archival research, it explores the motivations and experiences of these young travellers, mapping their everyday interaction with locals, and the joys and hardships of independent budget travel. It provides historical context for these journeys, and asks if the trail played a part in the troubles that later beset the region.
