Award-winning journalist and nonfiction writer Sharon Hatfield shares the story of Jonathan Koons, a 19th century farmer-spiritualist from southern Ohio.

In a fascinating work of religious history and cultural inquiry, Hatfield brings to life the true story of a nineteenth-century farmer-spiritualist, Jonathan Koons, whom thousands traveled to Ohio to see. As heirs to the second Great Awakening, he and his followers were part of a larger, uniquely American moment that still marks the culture today.
