Mungo co-founded the alternative news agency Liberation News Service with Marshall Bloom in the late summer of 1967, with the aim to distribute print-ready news packets to underground outlets across America. In only its third week it saw its material on the Pentagon siege printed in more than 100 newspapers, with a total readership of about a million. Eventually the service split into two warring factions, and Mungo moved to Vermont with Verandah Porche and others as part of the Back-to-the-land movement, a new life he describes in the book's final chapter.
