Delta Cooperative Farm and the Death of a Vision is a narrative of a noble experiment that failed. Of the three communities, The Delta Cooperative Farm was the most radical, romantic, practical, and pitiful in its demise. The promises made by the bosses at Hillhouse were not fulfilled; almost as soon as the promise of collective ownership of the means of production was made, it was withdrawn. The failure of the Socialists and liberal Christians to work together for good is demonstrated at Hillhouse. Chapter VI, Leaving Goshen, is conclusion and observation.
