Among Friends chronicles childhood recollections of growing up in Whittier, California, at the time still a predominately Quaker community. Fisher writes "The white children I knew when I was little had no need to be anything but well fed and secure in the best houses in town where they belonged to the best families. . . Their ancestors, buried in the Whittier cemetery or along the routes to California, had given up other homes just as solid, positions just as secure, to live their own lives as they saw fit, in a place where they could practice their beliefs unscorned. The settlement they named for their American poet would be theirs, and theirs it was when we came to it." [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
