Yes, there is such a book and it is written by Chelsea Cain. This author also wrote her autobiography of life on a commune called "Dharma Girl." These are both very good books. I dug them bother. However with the Hippie Handbook my dad bought this for me as a joke, but it has proven to be beneficial. There are recipies for Vegan Chocolate cake and "Oregano" Brownies. Yes pot brownies are in there...but she calls them "Oregano" because of the man assumably. As well as how to tie-dye your own t-shirt. Anyone pick up this groovy read yet?
