Forlagets beskrivelse
This pioneering look at secularism in the postwar Pacific Northwest looks at how the region's non-religious inhabitants consciously rejected the trappings of organized religion and set out on their own spiritual - or non-spiritual - paths.
Bibliotekernes beskrivelse
The image of a rough frontier - where working men were tempted away from church on Sundays by more profane concerns - was perpetuated by postwar religious leaders troubled by the decline in church involvement. Tina Block debunks the myth of a godless frontier, revealing a Pacific Northwest that rejected organized religion - but not necessarily God. Not just working men but also women, families, and middle-class communities helped to shape the region's secular identity. Drawing on oral histories, census data, newspapers, and archival sources, Block launches this exploration of Northwest secularity and the independent spirit of those who chose to live irreligiously.
