 1.  Pennsylvania Dutch and Other Essays
Phebe Earle Gibbons, with a new introduction by Don Yoder
448 pages, 4 3/4 x 7 1/4, paperback, Stackpole Books
Between 1869 and 1882, Phebe Earle Gibbons, a Pennsylvania Quaker, wrote down her first-hand observations of the lifestyles and customs of the Pennsylvania Dutch groups that surrounded her-the Amish, Mennonites, Moravians, Schwenkfelders-as well as English Quakers and Welsh and Irish miners of Scranton. She described their weddings, funerals, religious practices, social gatherings, family life, folk beliefs, and holidays. This new edition of Gibbons's classic work includes a new introduction by Don Yoder which discusses the significance of the book and the life of its author.

Reviews
The reappearance of this timeless book is both long overdue and an occasion for loud applause. --William Woys Weaver, author of Sauerkraut Yankees
