About this title

Synopsis:

We were patterned after the early church of the apostles. The Book of Acts speaks of the community that anyone could join. They brought their goods with them, to be shared by all, and each shared in everything that was provided. And so that is the basis of our union and our life in community. --Eldress Bertha Lindsay, from the foreword
The Shakers: Hands to Work, Hearts to God includes exquisite photography by Ken Burns, Langdon Clay and Jerome Liebling, along with archival photographs from the Shakers' own collections and a historical text by Amy Stechler Burns. The book provides a deeper understanding of the architecture, craft accomplishments and lives of the Shakers.
