Feature

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).

These 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 Geo.

About Mennonites
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."

Cultures
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.

In 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.

Feature
Three years ago, Lovella Schllenberg started a blog to record her thoughts, memories, and recipes from her Mennonite heritage. The response was positive--particularly to the recipes. So she started a blog dedicated to just that and invited other to join her. Nine women joined her, and Mennonite Girls Can Cook was born. This book, like the blog, features recipes based on the authors' Mennonite heritage, along with their personal stories and devotionals called Bread for the Journey. Proceeds from the sale of the book will go to a food-related charity.
