About this product
- DescriptionThe 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 t necessarily God. Women, families, and middle-class communities all helped to shape the region's secular identity. Drawing on oral histories, census data, news articles, and private archives, Block launches this exploration of Northwest secularity and the independent spirit of those who chose to live irreligiously.
- Author BiographyTina Block is an associate professor of history at Thompson Rivers University.
