Designer. Micajah Burnett (1791-1879). Pictured on Shaker calendar for 2002: sketch of Shaker Brother Micajah Burnett, (1791-1879), architect, engineer, surveyor and mathematician at Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill, KY, by a contemporary, the naturalist Constantine Rafinesque, professor at Transylvannia University, through whose courtesy it is used.
My first Shaker book, published in 2008, that started my Shaker series. This novel was a finalist for ECPA fiction book of the year. No beautiful winding stairways or Centre House in this one since it was set in 1812, the very early days of Shaker history in KY.
