Perks, Micah, We are gathered here. New York: A Wyatt Book for St. Martin's Press. 1996. Print


Two heroines challenge the constraints against women in 1880s New York State. One is Regina, whose epilepsy makes her an outcast in society, the other is Olive, a miner's wife hired to look after her. The pair share adventures that take them into alternative societies of Adirondack women: gypsy camps, a madhouse, and a commune of renegade Shaker women. A first novel.
