On March 10, 1995, when the thousands of Americans following the O.J. Simpson trial clicked on their TVs, they learned about the phenomenal chairs being sold at Ginny Rogers’ store. But in the 1970s, anyone witnessing the penniless hippie staggering from the wreckage of the Fujiyama Odyssey (billed as the greatest rock concert ever but now simply broke), and reeling from a failed marriage that had left her with two small children to support, would never have guessed what lay in wait for Virginia Rogers.
Starting a business that would revolutionize her field, converting to a new religion and traveling the world to teach it, solving a vexing back problem by rapidly transforming an unnoticed store into a nationwide franchise—all in a day’s work for Ginny. Drugs, sex, rock’n’roll, bites from venomous insects in the African bush, nearly freezing to death in the Himalayas—she’s done it all, and lived to tell the tale!
