Visionaries: A Journey To Table Mountain is a work of fiction in the historical subgenre. It is suitable for the general reading audience and was penned by RR Rowley. The book follows a college dropout, Mac McKenna, who is on a spiritual journey through 60s America, moving from commune to commune and enjoying the highs and lows of life on the fringes of society. After joining a group in the North Cascades, Mac is drawn into a movement to bring humanity closer to Mother Nature once more, a peaceful group that incurs the ire of law enforcement and government agencies in a struggle that would come to define the 70s.
The vivid depiction of the hippy communes of the 60s and 70s USA left such a lasting impression on me that when I finally put this book down I felt that in many ways I’d been there in person. RR Rowley’s personal experiences ground both the descriptive writing in the narrative and lay the foundation for a deeply provocative story about an individual finding his place among a wider social and political movement. Mac is an outstanding protagonist for a tale such as this, a lost soul seeking to find himself and figure out where in the world he is supposed to be. His introspection and evolution throughout the tale elevate him into a dynamic and fully realized character that readers will remember long after finishing this story. Visionaries paints a wonderful picture of an important moment in time, contextualizing and exploring it in a way that will leave readers without prior knowledge of the movement with a robust understanding.
