Jezebel wrote about it a couple of days ago and excerpted some passages, so you can check out a little more there.
I'll excerpt a little more:
Heather Van Dyke, for example, had a knack for getting women to fall in love with her. Almost as impressive, she usually managed to keep them as her friends and sometime lovers even after she had moved on. Some of this loyalty had to do with Heather's seductive personal power. She expresses ideas that are technically insane with so much vigor that you find yourself thinking, Well, maybe....There's this whole section devoted to how S&M made its way into the group, which is equally fascinating. It'd take up too much space to list it all here, so go buy the issue for the article, but here's a little more:
For Heather Van Dyke, who had been a kind of lesbian Joseph Smith, driving around the continent looking for the promised land with a band of wives and ex-wives and future wives in tow, the idea of being explicitly dominant -- a top, in the parlance of sadomasochism -- was particularly appealing.Oh, and I can't resist one last bit:
"We were everywhere," Van Dyke says. "We found Women's Land in North Carolina, Florida, Texas, Arkansas, New Mexico, Arizona, a lot of Women's Land in California and Oregon. You could actually go all around the country from Women's Land to Women's Land and you met all these other women who were doing the same thing. You would run into people in New Mexico that you had seen in Texas.... It was a whole world." It was the Lesbian Nation.
