0 Reviews
Mennonite women, whose lives stretched from the closing years of the last century and the early decades of the current one, were, for the most part, sturdy homemakers, mothers, and farm wives. One of these women, Ruth Hershey of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, kept a box camera near her children, her homestead, her garden, and her drop-in company. But as this rare collection of photographs (recently discovered by her grandson, a professional photographer) shows, Mrs. Hershey recorded life with an unusually artistic flair. "Recorded as it is by the intelligent lens of Ruth Hershey and the thoughtful descriptions of Phyllis Pellman Good, the book is a warm and lively portrait." -- Washington Post
