Teen Non-Fiction: Book of the Month!
All but two of the people called Shakers have passed away, yet Shaker culture today is alive and flourishing. These ingenious people developed a utopian society in the United States over 250 years ago, founded on their beliefs in cleanliness, order, purity, good health, hard work, simplicity, and an avoidance of waste. Today people from all over the world visit restored Shaker villages, admiring the clean lines of their architecture and seeking to buy Shaker furniture. This book explains the daily lives and values of the Shakers and an overview of the motives that governed them.
