Tasha Tudor wrote and illustrated more than 75 books. She loved the past and decided to live in another time—in the 1830s. She dressed in antique clothing, wove her own cloth and cooked on a wood stove with 19th century utensils. Previously, she met the followers of the Shaker religion. As a joke, she and her family invented their own religion called Stillwater. It was not a real religion, just a joke; but in a sense, the Stillwater religion is real. God invented it a long time ago, and David wrote about it in Psalms 23.
