Paperback in Very Good Condition
"Put your hands to work and your hearts to God," Mother Ann Lee told her spiritual children more than 200 years ago. Today, public appreciation of the Shakers and their works has never been keener. The Story of the Shakers by Flo Morse offers a stimulating, graceful summary of Shaker beliefs and the way of life that still endures.
Ms. Morse, a former writer for the New York Herald Tribune, is the author of The Shakers and the World's People, a comprehensive, widely praised documentary history. Of her work on the Shakers, Commonweal wrote: "Fascinating material. Superbly described." Kirkus Reviews commented, the Shakers have "a caring spokesperson in Flo Morse."
