"Tobias of the Amish" presents an intimate look at the life of Tobias J. Stutzman, an ambitious Amish entrepreneur. From installing electric lights in his woodworking shop to questioning the church's refusal of cars, Tobe continually pushes the boundaries of his Amish faith community. But as Tobe's ideas for inventions come up against delays, his growing debt to fellow church members raises the stakes. Can the Amish church support Tobe's grandiose dreams?
Follow the real-life journey of Tobias J. Stutzman from Amish communities in Oklahoma, through Kansas, and on to Iowa. Experience repeated heartache, triumph, and tragedy along the way as author Ervin R. Stutzman, youngest son of Tobias, paints this fictionalized but ultimately true story of his father's life.

Janus Tuttle3 Stars Out Of 5March 25, 2008Janus TuttleI have not quite finished reading this one, however I did not find it as interesting as others I have read. It did explain a lot about their faith and brought back memories that I remember happening during my lifetime about rationing and war. When I finish it I will read, "Emma, A Widow Among The Amish.
