This book examines the transplantation of English Quakers to the Delaware Valley of North America from the mid-seventeenth to mid-eighteenth centuries. It is especially concerned with the positive effect that Quaker values and virtues had upon America - in particular the emphasis on a vision of family and social life that stressed affection, and hospitality. It was this enjoyment of domestic happiness that represented the Quakers' principal legacy to nineteenth- and twentieth-century America. Students of American history.show more
