Availability information for this program

Only a handful of elderly Shakers are alive today, carrying on traditions of religious devotion that, at one time, were embraced by thousands of Americans in numerous self-supporting communities. This evocative program is a bittersweet portrait of 200 years of a truly original way of life.
