The Easter People: A Pen-picture of the Moravian Celebration of the Resurrection


This slender volume presents a beautifully detailed description of Old Salem, North Carolina; its luxuriant landscape, its buildings, its Moravian history. The author has recorded "one stranger's impression of a Salem Easter, and of the Moravian faith." Chapters include: Old Salem Today, Good Friday in Salem, The Salem of the Past, and A Salem Easter. Several charming illustrations enliven this elegant narrative. "Anyone who has ever been an eye-witness of the beautiful Easter customs which these pages commemorate must feel how inadequate is any description of a Salem Easter. This account, in a form shortened for magazine requirements, appeared in The Ladies' Home Journal of April, 1922, and it is with the kind permission of the editors that narrative and illustrations are here reprinted."
