Horse Drawn Yogurt is a book of stories about Peter Gould's decade on Total Loss Farm in Vermont. Peter moved to Vermont during the 1970s back-to-the-land movement and turned all the living, eating, smoking, dancing, loving, and gardening into stories. He writes of locals and newcomers helping each other during a pivotal moment of history, and how young people new to the land learned how to tend gardens and farms, while belonging to a international peace and justice movement against the Vietnam war.
Peter Gould is a founder of youth Shakespeare camps around Northern Vermont and a professor of meditation-for-conflict-transformation at Brandeis University. Peter has chronicled the 1970s in previous novels, Burnt Toast and Write Naked.
"This book is not a memoir," Gould says. "It's a comforter. I didn't throw all those old clothes away. I cut and pieced them and sewed them together. Now they keep me warm."
This event is a collaboration between the Norwich Historical Society and the Norwich Bookstore.

Horse Drawn Yogurt is a book of stories about Peter Gould's decade on Total Loss Farm in Vermont. Peter moved to Vermont in the back to the land movement and turned all the living, eating, smoking, dancing, and loving, and gardening into fiction: his first novel Burnt Toast (Alfred A. Knopf, 1972) brought all that together.
