9780944350430: John Woolman: Quintessential Quaker, 1720-1772

John Woolman, quintessential Quaker, was far ahead of his time. Aside from writing a celebrated Journal and many essays, he was an anti-slavery pioneer---long before there was an abolitionist movement.
Mystic and activist, today we would also call Woolman an 'environmentalist' and a promoter of animal concern. As well he championed the Native Americans, learned from them and worked for their better treatment. In an intolerant age Woolman also displayed a noteworthy irenical attitude toward all religious groups.
This book offers Woolman to a new generation of readers, and by placing him into the historical context of 18th-century America his extraordinary life shines forth even more clearly.
Samuel Taylor Coleridge despaired of the man 'who could peruse the life of John Woolman without amelioration of heart.' Readers have a chance to realize that the best thing in the world is really a good person.
