Out of print. Hunter S Thompson foreword. “The bus is perhaps the artefact of the entire psychedelic era, the very embodiment of the trip.” – Tom Wolfe
The fabled 1964 cross-country bus trip of Ken Kesey and the Merry Pranksters – on a psychedelically painted school bus crammed with amplifiers, cameras, costumes, and assorted contraband as cargo and Beat legend Neal Cassady at the wheelmarked the irreversible end of the “Eisenhower Era, ” and set an American cultural revolution in motion. On the Bus is a celebration of the unforgettable exploits of the Merry Pranksters, immortalized in Tom Wolfe’s bestselling book. In this engrossing popular history, the spirit of the era is captured in a remarkable living chronicle, combining analysis and history with colorful additional narrative by Kesey sidekick Ken Babbs. It features over 100 never-before-seen photos by Prankster photographer Ron Bevirt, Allen Ginsberg, and others, alongside candid and insightful interviews with participants and leading countercultural figures.
