The star of the international cult sensation The Blair Witch Project shares the high points of living on a marijuana farm post- Hollywood.
At age thirty-four, Heather Donahue's life went to pot. Literally. After starring in The Blair Witch Project-the tiny indie film- turned-blockbuster that Roger Ebert named one of the ten Most Influential Movies of the Century-she became a household name. But the afterglow of the movie waned, her acting career stalled, and she feared the day her epitaph would read, "Here Lies the Girl from The Blair Witch Project." Determined to start a new life, she left most remnants of the old one in the desert, meditated on things for a few days, then followed her brand-new boyfriend to her brand-new life- growing pot.
Growgirl is Heather's year living in Nuggettown, California, among "The Community"-a collection of growers, their "pot wives," and the reason for it all: "The Girls." They help one another build grow rooms, tend to their crops, and provide a glimpse into this rarely seen world that's currently the source of much intrigue and discussion. Though her relationship hits rocky territory, Heather's new life brings unexpected solace, and she's surprised to finally find normalcy in the least likely of places.

Heather Donahue left the fame machine of LA and her former life as the start of the Blair Witch Project behind, slipping into the mist of Northern California to take on growth - both her own and that of a garage full of medical marijuana plants. With a heartfelt humor and honest eye for detail, she takes you on a jaunt behind the green curtain, giving a glimpse of a lifestyle very few of us will ever experience. Her writing style is such that once I closed the back cover of the book, I reached for my phone to call her and tell her how great it was - until I realized that we actually don't know each other. Reading this book is like those exciting, get-to-know-you moments of a new friendship, full of palpable energy and enthusiasm.
Flat writing. Slow storyline. I've been reading books for 40 years. This is one of the worst. I give it NO stars but the review makes me give it at least one star to write a review. Another stupidity.
Hope this book helps to further the cause for legalizing cannabis growing in all States. It's about time. Great book.
