Frankfort, KY 2007 Softcover Very Good+ 9780972114486. 79 pages; Through the words of the imaginary (but very authentic) Sister Jessie, the lives of the Shakers of the Pleasant
Hill community in 19th century Kentucky are revealed in rich detail, humorous and poignant, spiritual and oh so human. Based on extensive historical research and chronicling the real people and events that shaped this community, this book is especially noteworthy for its focus on the largely undocumented lives of black Shakers. But most of all, it is great narrative poetry, the perfect medium for these voices to speak across the years to modern listeners.
