|Save 50%! Theirs is a world of mystery, a place apart. Where children
dress like miniature adults, where they speak Pennsylvania Dutch before
English (which they usually learn in first grade), where they are
entrusted with fieldwork and kitchen duty before they leave elementary
school, where they nearly always share three meals a day with their
parents and siblings (except lunch during the school year). |
are children who grow up without television, computers, or telephones.
But they know their grandparents intimately; the boys can harness a
horse and take their part in the twice-daily milking operation; the
girls can quilt, bake bread from scratch, and look after their
preschooler sisters and brothers.
What is it like to be an Amish
child? With unforgettable photographs, Jerry Irwin shows moments
within the Amish community. Children overlooking the barnraising,
scholars (as the Amish refer to their elementary-school-aged students)
conferring with their teacher, Datt (Pennsylvania Dutch for Dad)
leading a fishing expedition of youngsters, sisters hosing down the
buggy, a family at the school picnic, a sister and brother pitching
watermelons to Mamm(Pennsylvania Dutch for Mom). The photography is
immediate, artistic, respectful.
Phyllys Pellman Good provides
interpretive text, covering such themes as "working at Home and Working
Away," "Hope Chest Treasures," "Ceremonial Moments," "Belonging,"
"Visiting," and "Amish children's Lessons: Driving the Buggy and
Lighting the Lamps."
Irwin is a freelance photographer who has
specialized in Amish subjects. He has had six books published. His
photographs have appeared in numerous magazines, including Sports
Illustrated, National Geographic, Country Journal, National Geographic
Traveler, Washington Post Magazine, Harrowsmith, and

paperback, 397 pages, $12.50|
|Save 50%! Who are the Mennonites, the Amish, and the Hutterites? Where did
they come from? How have they developed over the course of their three
centuries in North America? And what is their future? From a
sociological and historical perspective, Calvin Redekop explores the
Mennonites' beliefs, the organization of their institutions, their
family life, economics, and aesthetics, even the existence of a distinct
"Mennonite personality." |

|by Donald B. Kraybill and James P. Hurd|
paperback, 362 pages, $10.00|
|Save 50%! On a May Sunday in 1927, progress and tradition collided at the
Groffdale Old Order Mennonite Church in eastern Pennsylvania when half
the congregation shunned the cup of wine offered by Bishop Moses
Horning. The boycott of this holiest of Mennonite customs was indirect
response to Horning's decision to endorse the automobile after years of
debate within the church. The resulting schism over opposing views of
technology produced the group known as the Wenger Mennonites. |
this first-of-its-kind study of the Wenger Mennonites, Kraybill and
Hurd-a sociologist and an anthropologist-use cultural analysis to
interpret the Wengers both in and outside Pennsylvania. They
systematically compare the Wengers with other Mennonite groups as well
as with the Amish, showing how relationships with these other groups
have had powerful impact on shaping the identity of the Wenger
Mennonites in the Anabaptist world.
