it was amazing
bookshelves: history, baroque, american-history, favorites
Recommended to Susanna - Censored by GoodReads by: New York Times book review
Recommended for: anyone interested in history

The four "folkways" looked at are Puritan New England, Quaker Pennsylvania, Virginia, and the Scots-Irish (who went everywhere).

To my mind the best section is that on the Puritans, but the entire book is interesting.

Highly recommended.

Bettie Which branch gave the world the Mormons?

Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Not sure any of them, actually; Joseph Smith was from NY state, which has a complex settlement history.
