More than a how-to book. More than a nude beach update. "American Nudist" is the story of a Hawaii- born nudist's unique life, his personal and political struggles and the creative work that resulted. "American Nudist" collects journalist/filmmaker Tony Young's published and unpublished articles on the naturist lifestyle written during his college years, chronicles his experiences organizing the Hawaii Skinnydippers in the mid-1990s, along with his controversial poetry and short stories. All this and a nude beach guide to the Hawaiian Islands.
According to Photographer/Producer Clinton H. Wallace's introduction, this book is "a spiritual quest, full of triumphs and failures, the ultimate significance of Young's journal resides not only in his contribution to our knowledge of the nudist lifestyle but reminds us how incomplete that knowledge is."
