Description
Isolated on the prairies of Montana far from mainstream America, the Hutterites live on large farms and ranches. They shun the modern world. Less assimilated than the Amish and the Mennonites, they practice communal living through shared ownership of all property and income. Although the Hutterites use modern agricultural equipment, they carefully protect their spiritual life by avoiding worldly temptations -- no televisions, radios, cars, or dancing. The Hutterites represent an overlooked story in the modern American West and are a part of our nation's religious history.

This stunning book is a unique document of the Hutterites of Montana, comprising Laura Wilson's photographs and interviews with them over a fourteen-year period. Wilson explains how she met the Hutterites and received unprecedented access to photograph them in their day-to-day life. Then, often using the words of members of the community, she reveals fascinating details about their history, their leadership structure, their religious beliefs, the place of women in their society, the education of their young, and the strength of their communal tradition. Wilson's text and photographs bring to life a remarkable people whose close family ties, spiritual activities, and sure sense of place contrast dramatically with the values and preoccupations of our own rootless society.
