520    "Leigh Eric Schmidt rebuilds the history of American 
       secularism from the ground up, giving flesh and blood to 
       these outspoken infidels, including itinerant lecturer 
       Samuel Porter Putnam; rough-edged cartoonist Watson 
       Heston; convicted blasphemer Charles B. Reynolds; and 
       atheist sex reformer Elmina D. Slenker. He describes their
       everyday confrontations with devout neighbors and 
       evangelical ministers, their strained efforts at civility 
       alongside their urge to ridicule and offend their 
       Christian compatriots. Schmidt examines the multilayered 
       world of social exclusion, legal jeopardy, yet also civic 
       acceptance in which American atheists and secularists 
       lived. He shows how it was only in the middle decades of 
       the twentieth century that nonbelievers attained a measure
       of legal vindication, yet even then they often found 
       themselves marginalized on the edges of a God-trusting, 
       Bible-believing nation. Village Atheists reveals how the 
       secularist vision for the United States proved to be 
       anything but triumphant and age-defining for a country 
       where faith and citizenship were--and still are--routinely
       interwoven, "--Amazon.com.
