Letters From American Utopia by Christopher Clark

Most of the 75 letters presented were written by Dolly Stetson or her elder daughters to their husband and father while he was away working during the first years of their time at the Northampton Association of Education and Industry, in western Massachusetts. Discovered in 1998, they provide a rare first-hand and sustained look at life within one of the many utopian communities that sprouted in the US during the 19th-century. In addition, essays by historians and other scholars describe marriage, education, and conduct; silk; and the African American presence. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
