Editorial Reviews


Night Journeys is a fascinating study of the meaning of dreams in the history of early Quakerism. Gerona combines meticulous scholarship with a sophisticated use of dream theory, to trace the changing meanings of dreams as they were told and retold, both within and outside the Quakercommunity.

(Phyllis Mack, Rutgers University)

Carla Gerona offers an interesting and rich exploration of the Quakers' use of dreams and dream narratives. Dreams both guided and justified Quaker action, legitimating their potentially subversive and troubling religious, political, and social practices. There has been far too little attention to the role of dreams and dreaming in early America, and this book makes an important and exciting contribution.

(Ann Marie Plane, University of California, Santa Barbara)
