"Describes a businessman's utopia based on efficient distribution by co-op department stores, a 'practical' application of Christianity. Peck actually tried this experiment" - Glenn Negley, "American Utopian Literature (1888-1900): An Annotated Bibliography" in "American Literary Realism 1870-1910," Vol. 4, No. 3 (Summer, 1971).
