Phoenix to LA: A True Story of One Man's Journey Out of the 1960’s


In his evocative memoir, Phoenix to LA, Marty McMorrow takes readers on a mesmerizing trek through America in the 1960’s.

By the time we reach the “High Hopes” Drug Amnesty Center, where Marty is treating young soldiers impacted by the heroin epidemic in Vietnam, we've discovered a time and place that the history books barely touched.
