The Story of the Shakers (Paperback)
Featuring a new introduction, a compassionate look at a religious movement that shaped America
“Put your hands to work and your hearts to God,” Mother Ann Lee told her spiritual children more than 200 years ago. Today, as the number of Shakers has dwindled to only a handful, the story of the Shakers has never been more important to record and understand. In this classic book featuring a brand-new introduction, Flo Morse offers a stimulating, graceful summary of Shaker beliefs and the way of life that still endures among a chosen few.
Flo Morse, a former writer for the New York Herald Tribune, has been called “a caring spokesperson” for the Shaker community. She lives with her family in Santa Fe, New Mexico
