Detailed description of a fictional intentional community. Egalitarian except that African-Americans were not welcome and did not join. People were paid salaries with allowances for children and had to pay only for purely personal expenses. Varied work. School is important with a stress on the subjects needed in the community like agriculture, animal husbandry, “home crafts” and “shop crafts”, with science and mathematics and history and literature in addition.
