A Fascinating Journey Into The Heart And Culture Of A Reclusive Religious Community. I Am Hutterite Takes Readers Into The Hidden Heart Of The Little-Known Hutterite Colony In Southern Manitoba Where Author Mary-Ann Kirkby Spent Her Childhood. When She Was Ten Years Old Her Parents Packed Up Their Seven Children And A Handful Of Possessions And Left The Security Of The Colony To Start A New Life. Overnight They Were Thrust Into A World They Didn't Understand, A World That Did Not Understand Them.Before She Left The Colony Mary-Ann Had Never Tasted Macaroni And Cheese Or Ridden A Bike. She Had Never Heard Of Walt Disney Or Rock-And-Roll. She Was Forced To Reinvent Herself, Denying Her Heritage To Fit In With Her Peers. With Great Humor, Kirkby Describes How She Adapted To Popular Culture; And With Raw Honesty Her Family's Deep Sense Of Loss For Their Community. More Than A History Lesson, I Am Hutterite Is A Powerful Tale Of Retracing Steps And Understanding How Our Beginnings Often Define Us.?
