Shipshewana: An Indiana Amish Community

Dorothy O. Pratt

Shipshewana: An Indiana Amish Community by Dorothy O. Pratt

While most books about the Amish focus on the Pennsylvania settlements or on the religious history of the sect, this book is a cultural history of one Indiana Amish community and its success in resisting assimilation into the larger culture. Amish culture has persisted relatively unchanged primarily because the Amish view the world around them through the prism of their belief in collective salvation based on purity, separation, and perseverance. Would anything new add or detract from the community's long-term purpose? Seen through this prism, most innovation has been found wanting.

When the Roll is Called a Pyonder

Diana R. Zimmerman

When the Roll is Called a Pyonder by Diana R. Zimmerman"With grace, humor, and sensitivity, Diana R. Zimmerman renders a traditional Mennonite farm family in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, as seen through a child's eyes and spoken in the hypnotic rhythms of a young girl's voice. The spirited speaker develops a rich sense of herself and her community as she grows up in a conservative religious context where "help means spank," and female children are reared for lives of obedience, modesty, and piety. This is a remarkably immediate work of memory and imagination-authentic, fair-minded, and unsentimental- suitable for readers of all ages." -Julia Spicher...
