According to the dust wrapper blurb this book is the story of a "modern agrarian Utopia - the village founded in the San Luis Valley in Colorado by Mr. Tanouye, a Japanese who settled in the United States in 1929 to gently convince his neighbors that a peaceful, sharing community would reap benefits that far exceeded the financial gain involved ... In Culebra Village, families live in private houses but share communal meals. Each does the work for which he is best fitted ... There is virtually no crime because there is no need to waver in the land of plenty and love ..."
