I have read the book through twice now and it just keeps getting better and better. I have read extensivly of the eastern settlements but knew very little about the western groups. I enjoyed seeing the differences as well as the similarities in the way of life and the furniture. The book was a nice balance of how life was day to day and the furniture they created. This is the second book I am aware of written by an experienced woodworker so the insights are of more interest than the usual picture/history book we see so many of. The other is by Chris Becksvoort, which I have equally enjoyed.

I also enjoyed the drawings by Kerry's brother. I think those added greatly to the book. I know when I look at an old piece of woodworking I am some time before I can see the structure in the design. The drawings help me to see this much cleared and sooner.

All in all, I highly reccomend this book be added to the libraries of the serious funiture builder or collector as well as those interested in history. It gives an overall view of what was going on in that part of the country at that time and how the Shakers reacted to it.

This book gives a good history of the shakers in general and pleasant hill in specific. The furniture is described and photographed well enough for the amateur to easily make a reproduction or get ideas for their own designs.

I just upgraded my review - in the year or so I've had this book, I find myself going back over and over to savor not just the fine depiction of Shaker furniture, but the Pleasant Hill community as well - looking forward to visiting to see it all first hand. if you're interested in the Shakers, and especially their furniture, you need this book.
I love pictures of shaker furniture. My husband wants scale drawings. In this book we got both.
