Old Order Mennonites live in closed communities, rejecting much of modern life. Many still use horse-drawn equipment on their farms; their style of clothing has changed little in the last 100 years. They strive for lives of peace, humility, and simplicity. Yet, as Kathleen Kenna and Andrew Stawicki show, their lives are not simple or easy. After years of attending barn raisings, religious services, and events in private homes, the writer and photographer befriended members of several Mennonite communities, who agreed to be interviewed and photographed.

This book contains a series of photographs that create an unusual portrait of Old Order Mennonite life. The pictures were taken after a friendship and trust gained from years of visiting communities and attending services.
