Reuben was ducking strawberries in the truck patch when his dad got the idea about making a quilt. The whole family would help. They would make the quilt as beautiful as possible. Then they would sell it at the auction to raise money for the sick old man on the next farm. But the colorful log cabin quilt disappears before they have a chance to give it away. This hearty Amish family faces a new adventure! Moss and Good’s new collaboration is as rich and lively as their two highly successful earlier books—Reuben and the Fire and Reuben and the Blizzard. This revised edition features updated text and newly designed pages. Sky Pony Press, with our Good Books, Racehorse and Arcade imprints, is proud to publish a broad range of books for young readers—picture books for small children, chapter books, books for middle grade readers, and novels for young adults.

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.

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.

“Thought provoking and heart warming.” — Journal of Mennonite Studies Here is the third volume in an engaging series. Pointed and powerful, the book is a window into the souls of a people who intend to live with integrity, but are candid about the trouble it can be! “What Mennonites Are Thinking is a collection of various genres of literature: essays and articles, fiction, poetry, opinion and humor pieces, book reviews and film ratings. The writers come from a wide variety of Anabaptist-related groups—from Amish to Mennonite Brethren. Although mainly North Americans, a few writers from other continents are also included, thus giving the volume some international feeling.” “Here is a sampling of the best in Mennonite writing in one volume.” — Mennonite Quarterly Review
