Writing the Amish: The Worlds of John A. Hostetler
"Writing the Amish" both recounts and assesses Hostetler's Amish-related work. The first half of the book consists of four reflective essays - by Donald Kraybill, Simon Bronner, David Weaver-Zercher, and Hostetler himself - in which Hostetler is the primary subject. The second half reprints in chronological order fourteen key writings by Hostetler with commentaries and annotations by Weaver-Zercher. Paperback. Penn State University Press, 2005. 351 pages.
