The Boy from Lapland

A young man from a small village, enamored with hippie girls and consumed with wanderlust.

The year is 1973. Simo is a young man growing up in a small Northern parish with his hermit uncle. On a hazy morning he meets three beautiful hippie girls, falls in love with one of them, and immediately leaves for Helsinki.

The Boy from Lapland is a novel about outsiderdom, success and self-sacrifice. We follow the story of Simo and the girls for a couple of decades, as the wild teens grow into adults who end up taking responsibility for their decisions.
