The Secular Northwest

Full Product Description

The 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 not 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.

The Secular Northwest by Tina Block was published by University of British Columbia Press in April 2016. The ISBN for The Secular Northwest is 9780774831284.
