Naked Quakers and other forgotten Americans —feisty, unruly and surprisingly irreverent— come to life in these true court cases from colonial New England. The title story involves a Quaker woman who walked into a Puritan Sunday meeting and dropped her dress in front of the gathering, to protest actions of the colonial authorities.
