Summary From the Back Cover: Twin Oaks, perhaps America's most famous and successful commune, was founded in rural Virginia in 1967 by Kathleen Kinkade and several other people, all of whom were influenced by B.F. Skinner's Walden Two. Eschewing primitivism for its own sake, embracing technology instead of rejecting it, these creators of Twin Oaks set out to build a community not only structured but also experimental in which the goal was the "good life". Kathleen Kinkade describes in great detail the story of the hard work put in by people who wanted to live together in as much harmony as possible.
