For a time, the Isle of Wight Festivals transformed a sleepy English island into the rock‘n’roll capital of the world.
What started in 1968 as a parochial one-nighter in a stubble field to raise funds for a local swimming pool, a year later ballooned into a massive outdoor gathering. Numbers sky-rocketed as devotees flocked to the Island from mainland Britain, Europe, the Americas and as far away as Australia, to pay homage to rock’s poet laureate, Bob Dylan.
Stealing Dylan from Woodstock tells, from a unique perspective, of an extraordinary event which seismically altered the lives of the author, his family, all those involved with it and many of those who attended.
Tracing Thomas Machell, forgotten explorer

“One of the most remarkable books I have ever read… a deeply moving, totally enchanting account of a great metaphysical mystery.”
