About the author (1999)

A long-time friend of the Canterbury and Hancock Shakers, Amy Bess Miller was the prime mover in founding the Hancock Shaker Village in 1960 when the last Shakers living there had to sell their land. It comes as no surprise that this active and motivated woman was President of the Board of Trustees at Hancock Shaker Village for more than 30 years upon her retirement. A Shaker herbs and cooking expert, Amy is the author of The Best of Shaker Cooking and Storey's Shaker Medicinal Herbs. Amy lives in the Berkshire hills of Massachusetts.
