Promise of Paradise Episode 14: George Montag

Feb 14, 2019

February 14, 2019 -- Today's story comes from George Montag, who was born in Hungary, grew up in New York City, and came to California for the Summer of Love. In 1971, he arrived in Elk, with his young son and two cardboard boxes that contained everything they owned. He tells the story of how he found a job setting choke chain, fell in love with the woman who ran the nursery school, and helped found the Jewish community. We'll hear about Passover muffins, the hexagonal house, and if he thinks his generation managed to pass the back-to-the-land ethos on to the next generation.
