Overview

A lawyer and historian scours the court records of early New England to reveal the daily underside of Puritan life.

Editorial Reviews

Diane Rapaport's previous book was New England Court Records: A Research Guide for Genealogists and Historians, so it seems only right that she would share her own most exciting archival finds. As its title suggests, The Naked Quaker bares seldom-seen aspects of Colonial New England life. Representative chapter headings include "Witches & Wild Women," "Coupling," "Parents & Youth," "Tavern Tales," "Slaves & Servants," and "Neighbor vs. Neighbor." Glimpses into a vanished world.
