The Shakers, Wim Coleman

1 The Shakers
Wim Coleman
68 pages, 5.5 x 4, paperback / softcover, History Compass
In 1774, a tiny band of English religious dissenters came to America seeking redemption and earthly paradise through hard work and good deeds. They were called Shakers, and their leader was a mysterious and charismatic woman known as Mother Ann Lee. They founded their first community in Watervliet, New York, hoping to convert others to their beliefs and communal lifestyle. This anthology presents Shaker contributions to architecture, furniture design, medicine, farming, craftsmanship, music, and other aspects of American life. It also introduces the philosophy of the Shakers -- and the beliefs which sustained them through hardship and intolerance, while they strove for salvation here on earth.

The popular Perspectives on History series contains compelling firsthand accounts from colonists to astronauts and is widely used as supplemental material in the study of history and literature in grades 6- College Level. Use of primary sources through excerpts from journals
