Product Description

I Am Hutterite is the fasinating, true story of a young woman's journey to reclaim her heritage. In 1969, Ann-Marie's parents left the Hutterite community in southern Manitoba with their seven children. Overnight Ann-Marie entered a world she didn't understand where mac & cheese, bicycles, rock-n-roll, and Walt Disney were commonplace. In order to fit in with her peers, she hid her true self and now, in this memorable tale, she retraces her steps back to the beginning to discover her true self.

Publisher's Description

"Your mother and father are running away," said a voice piercing the warm air. I froze and turned toward home. To a Hutterite, nothing is more shameful than that word, running away, Weglaufen..."

In 1969, Ann-Marie's parents did the unthinkable. They left a Hutterite colony in Canada with seven children, and little else, to start a new life. Overnight, the family was thrust into a society they did not understand and which knew little of their unique culture. The transition was overwhelming. Desperate to be accepted, ten-year-old Ann-Marie was forced to deny her heritage in order to fit in with her peers. I Am Hutterite chronicles her quest to reinvent herself as she comes to terms with the painful circumstances that led her family to leave community life. Rich with memorable characters and vivid descriptions, this ground-breaking narrative shines a light on intolerance, illuminating the simple truth that beneath every human exterior beats a heart longing for understanding and acceptance.

"A superb memoir . . . this has the makings of a prairie classic."

--AWARD JURY, SASK BOOK AWARDS

"Honest, strong, clear, direct, it opens the door on what has been for so many of us a completely closed world."

--WINNIPEG FREE PRESS
