Helen Zuman is a Harvard graduate who spent a period in her twenties at Zendik Farm, a community that she found out later on was a cult. Her book, Mating in Captivity, chronicles her time spent at Zendik Farm, associating with other like-minded individuals who didn't want to be a part of mainstream society and the control that was put on them by the hierarchy on the farm. Helen has written a fascinating and vivid account of alternate living, youth idealism, sexual awakening and maturing from experience.
