In the mid-1800s an idealistic band of settlers relocated from Pennsylvania and Missouri to the lush Willamette Valley in Oregon Territory, where they established a Christian community centered on the values of service, brotherhood, and compassion. For more than 20 years, the Aurora colonists tended to the needs of one another and their neighbors, stumbling occasionally over the flaws of their humanity yet faithfully seeking significance and beauty in carrying out the essential tasks of life. This book tells the story of this extraordinary community shaped by landscape, relationships, work, and faith. A beautiful celebration of a time and place in which people expressed their most cherished beliefs through the work of their hands and left a rich legacy of vibrant quilts and textiles, exquisitely handcrafted furniture, antique musical instruments, and more.
"A fantastic journey. A remarkable commitment. And a simple faith."
Wrap yourself in a riveting American tale told in beautiful stitches and craft
Master storyteller Jane Kirkpatrick extols the beautiful treasures, unknown to a wider public, rediscovered in the Old Aurora Colony of Oregon's lush Willamette Valley.
