The religious sect known as the Shakers, who at their height (ca. 1825)  numbered around 4,000, has always exerted a profound influence on the American imagination. Perhaps it was their simplicity, or their celibacy, or their strict rules for communal living, but while other utopian communities have long since been forgotten, the Shakers live on. Founded by Mother Ann Lee in the 18th century, they soon had active communities throughout the Midwest & as far south as Kentucky. Dedicated to serving God, they lived simple, agrarian lives in harmony with the changing seasons, content with what they could provide with their own hands & labor. This book brings back the virtues of hard work, simple needs, rural living, & an admirable religious order. Illus.
