From the Preface: "This book is a panoramic view of New Harmony from the portals and windows of the Old Fauntleroy Home. It offers some choice glimpses of that romantic setting and seeks to reflect with true historic symmetry some of the colorful acts that have passed on that extraordinary stage. .... I must acknowledge the extensive aid received from my son, Ross, Jr., both in the research and writing." --Ross F. Lockridge.
