192 pp, 8" H. Inscribed on title page: "For Gerry & Eugene: / Nice seeing you again. / Hope you enjoy these storie! / Al". "Most of the short stories in this collection focus on the Mennonite town of Kleindarp during the mid-century, World War II decades. It is a staid Mennonite community that tries to ignore the war as much as possible while pursuing its rigorous religious practices and passion for 'born again' spirituality'. But along with an older 'fallen-off' (lapsed church member) like Gumshoe Ike Isaac and a non-believer like Duck Janz, there are younger rebels like Danny Brandt, Mel Plett and Steve Froese who turn their backs on the community and opt for Caesare's world. However, there are also characters like Old Eva, Anna Brandt and Wilhelm Fast, among others, who are able to lead rewarding lives in Kleindarp in spite of its self-enforced restrictions. These stories illustrate that even a small, isolated Mennonite world has both dark and bright sides where human nature can flare above oppression and prejudice, and envision life in new and creative forms." "The final story in this collection, 'Mennonite Firebirds', is a sequel to (the author's) historical novel ('My Harp is Turned to Mourning') about the Mennonites in Russia during the tragic revolutionary years". Contents: Preface; Moses in the Promised Land; Old Eva's Cure; When War Came to Kleindarp; Hey, Think You're Charlie Conacher?; Duck Janz and Gumshoe Ike Isaac; Revival; Opening and Closing the Door to Life; A Pocketful of Sugar Cubes; Cycling to Vancouver; A Face in the Mud; Mennonite Firebirds; Acknowledgements. Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - slight curl-up of fore-edge of front cover, minor wear at top/bottom of front hinge.
