Woodstock '69

Myron Gittell, RN

The story of the frantic, often chaotic, sometimes comical medical drama of the health care at the 1969 Woodstock Festival. Everyone from "hip" doctors, to Army helicopter pilots to vacationing nuns pitched in to make the hippie festival a happy rather than horrific occasion.

This book gives the inside story of everything from the tragic deaths of 2 fair-goers to the mysterious birth of the "Woodstock Baby", to the Hog Farmers using talk-therapy on the most spaced-out of trippers.

Those involved in emergency medicine today will appreciate what their counterparts went through thirty years ago.
