"Hutterite Diaries is a welcome and long overdue contribution that fills a void in the daily events of a Hutterite. This book reveals a way of life that seems extraordinary to the outside world."

--Paul M. Wipf, farm steward "Reviews"

"Hutterite Diaries is an insightful look into Hutterite colony life from an insider who not only describes what life is like there but why things are done in particular ways.

--Suzanne Woods Fisher, author of Amish Peace "Reviews"

--Mary-Ann Kirby, author of I Am Hutterite and Secrets of a Hutterite Kitchen "Reviews"

--Sigmund Brouwer, author of Thief of Glory "Reviews"

--Joe McLellan, author of the Nanabosho series "Reviews"
