Where do Mennites come from? How do you accidentally build a shoemaker? What happens when a family tries to leave the Old Order Faith and yet t make it into the real world? What happens to you when you throw a shovel full of sand at your mother? These and other matters of great pitch and moment are herein addressed. The author recounts family, social, and religious life in a household longer enjoying the comfort and traditions of the Old Order Mennite t yet assimilated into the modern world of the heathen Lutherans and hell-bound Catholics. The struggle of choices, a young man caught somewhere between the horse and heaven.
