KIRKUS REVIEW

This supplies all the answers for that audience which has its roots or interest in this section of the country, for its overall coverage is comprehensive. There is the history of the various and religions that have settled here -- the Mennonites, the Amish, the Lutherans, the Brethren, the Moravians, their differences and individual characteristics, there is detailed description of the arts, the culture, food, customs, dialect, speech singularities and phraseology, and the contribution of the communities to American life. this is a valuable reference book on an area which is distinguished by its extreme individuality.
