Reviews

"Mark Ferrara's tour of America's intentional communities is an engrossing journey into the best of American idealism. Ferrara has focused on communities not widely known and enriches our knowledge of these experimental utopias."--Timothy Miller "author of The Encyclopedic Guide to American Intentional Communities "
"Mark Ferrara brings history alive with vivid descriptions of unique intentional communities, and their idealistic, and often quirky founders. He makes a compelling case that this particularly American impulse to build communities, in order to promote the values of equality, cooperation, and care for the earth, is both in response to the historical moment and also has helped to shape American society through bold innovation. A fascinating read!"
--Liz Walker "author of EcoVillage at Ithaca: Pioneering a Sustainable Culture "
"Highly recommended."--Choice
