Carefully chosen from thousands of archival photos and from a drawerful of snapshots saved by Eldress Bertha Lindsay, one of the last Shakers to live at Canterbury and herself a consummate photographer, these pictures - most of them never intended for publication - give new life to the Shaker lifestyle. These farmers, artisans, and celibate guardians of orphan children lived in what David R. Starbuck calls an unusually humane environment and maintained a faith that was remarkably resilient and long lasting.
