Summary The camp was created because of the oil shale bust and the real estate boom, by protests against Reagan and against the Gulf War. Caleb Silver, the beloved founder of the back-to-the-land camp Llamalo, is determined to teach others to live simply. Ranchers Don and his son, Donnie, gave up their land to Caleb and now want it back. Rebecca Silver is determined to become an activist like her father. And David, a teenager, has turned Llamalo into his personal religion. But sometimes good intentions can go terribly wrong... and idealism can forever changes one's life. -- adapted from jacket.
