520 The forgotten history of a colonial-era Utopia resonates
to the present day in this epic of narrative nonfiction in
the tradition of David Grann's The Lost City of Z and
Rinker Buck's The Oregon Trail In 1735, charismatic
German lawyer and accused atheist Christian Gottlieb
Priber fled Germany, under threat of arrest, bound for
colonial South Carolina. When he arrived, he sold his
possessions and hiked 400 miles west, into the woods of
what is now Tennessee. There, in the Cherokee village of
Grand Tellico, Priber created a utopian society that he
named Paradise. For six years, Paradise was governed by a
set of revolutionary ideas that included racial equality,
sexual freedom, and a lack of private property. Most
troublingly for the English, Priber spoke against
colonialism itself. Many of his ideas - which he
chronicled in a mysterious manuscript he called Paradise -
went on to inform the American and French Revolutions, as
well socialist theory. Priber's ideas were so subversive
that he was hunted for half a decade and eventually
captured by the British - making headlines in London - and
was imprisoned until his death. At that point, the only
copy of his book was apparently burned. John Jeremiah
Sullivan brings this lost history to vivid life, immersing
readers in the world of the colonies, 18th-century Native
American life, and Enlightenment-era Europe with a vast
body of research and his singular narrative gifts.
