My Hutterite Life

Front Cover
Farcountry Press, 2003 - Religion - 160 pages
10 Reviews
Lisa Marie Stahl, a young Hutterite woman who grew up at the Gildford Colony near Havre, Montana, provides a rare public glimpse into the lives of the Hutterites, a communal religious group with colonies in the upper Midwest, Northwest, and Canada.

Originally appearing in the Great Falls Tribune, Lisa's "On the Colony" columns cordially and tenderly shared details about the Hutterites' style of dress, colony organization, beliefs, holidays and celebrations, and day-to-day life.

Her first-person-style articles have been collected, organized, and bound for the first time in this special book. Beautiful black and white photographs by Michael Crummett complement the text.

Review: My Hutterite Life

User Review  - Jill Crosby - Goodreads

An excellent "starter" book that offers a clear vision of WHAT goes on in Hutterite colony and HOW daily life is lived. It was a little short, though, on WHY this sect lives the way it does, explaining their customs and traditions without giving background or origins. Read full review
