About the Book

A thorough anthropological study of a distinct religious cult of the Indian tribes of the Pacific Northwest. The book traces the Shaker cult’s development, its ceremonies, ritual elements, faiths, and doctrine.


“As a history and ethnography of the Shaker movement, I predict that Barnett’s book will stand as a classic for years to come.”—E. Z. Vogt, American Sociological Review
