Destined to become the standard reference on Pennsylvania Germans (also known as the "Pennsylvania Dutch"), this book is the first survey of this extensive American group in nearly seventy-five years. Nineteen broad interpretive essays written by a distinguished group of historians, anthropologists, sociologists, linguists, and folklorists tell the rich and nuanced story of Pennsylvania German history and culture. United by a distinct (and distinctly American) language, the Pennsylvania Germans have been slower to assimilate than other ethnic groups. This sweeping volume reveals, though, that the group is much less homogenous and isolated than was previously thought. From architecture, media, and farming techniques to food, folklore, and medicine, the Pennsylvania Germans and their descendants display a wide range of cultural variation. In Pennsylvania Germans, editors Simon J. Bronner and Joshua R. Brown broaden the geographical and social coverage of the group, touching both on Pennsylvanian communities and the Pennsylvania German diaspora, including settlements in Canada and Mexico. They also expand historical coverage of the Pennsylvania Germans to the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Beautifully illustrated, this volume—while paying tribute to the historical and cultural legacy of the Pennsylvania Germans—is the most comprehensive book on the subject to date. Contributors: R. Troy Boyer, Simon J. Bronner, Joshua R. Brown, Edsel Burdge Jr., William W. Donner, John B. Frantz, Mark Häberlein, Karen M. Johnson-Weiner, Donald B. Kraybill, David W.

Amish + Quilts = readers delight! And in this first book in Patrick Craig’s Apple Creek Dreams series, readers will follow Jerusha Springer’s journey out of tragic circumstances to a new life of hope. Jerusha has spent months making the most beautiful quilt anyone in Apple Creek, Ohio, has ever seen, and she knows it’s going to take first prize at the Quilt Fair in Dalton. The prize will be her ticket out of the Amish way of life—away from the memories of her dead daughter and her tormented husband. But on the way to the Fair, she gets caught in the Storm of The Century and Jerusha’s driver crashes their car. While the driver goes for help, Jerusha is led by someone, or something, to the side of a lost little girl. By the time the storm clears, Jerusha finds there is a greater prize to be won than money and blue ribbons. A beautiful story of loss….and redemption.

The Amish movement, whose members live in 19 states of Canada and Central America are a mystery to just about everyone except themselves. Here is a group which has deliberately passed on just about everything modern society has to offer, extending as far as electricity, gasoline, television, automobiles and movies. Yet Amish children are not educationally deprived in any way and regularly score above average on standardised tests. This book presents background information including a bibliography on this most interesting movement and includes also a review of Supreme Court rulings related to the Amish.

"This is a novel about the coming-of-age of America and the violent conflicts between races and cultures that mar our history. Gibbons' hero, Reuben, embodies the covert mingling of blood that fueled the hatred and paranoia of the South. Reuben, half Choctaw and half white, loses the only parent he knew when his Choctaw mother dies in 1896. He is taken in by a generous black woman who graces him with his full name, Reuben Saved Sweetbitter, and teaches him to read. Reuben grows up handsome, strong, independent, smart, and adept at navigating the treacherous currents that divide whites, blacks, and reds. But then he falls in love with Martha, the fair-skinned, wild-haired, willful, and sensual daughter of a prominent lawyer. Their forbidden passion is enough to get them killed in this land of virulent racism and the KKK. Clearly, this is an adventure story and a romance, but it's that and much more. Reuben muses that there are "too many worlds," and Gibbons captures the rhythm of each, describing every nuance of attitude, from fear to compassion to cowardliness to courage."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
