Horse-and-Buggy Genius

Listening to Mennonites Contest the Modern World

Auteur/ Illustrateur / Sous la direction de : Royden Loewen

In both North and South America, many ultra-traditional Mennonites rejected the modern world, especially its icon the automobile. They became known as « horse-and-buggy » people. Historian Royden Loewen, the grandson of Mennonite immigrants, lived with traditional « Old Colony » Mennonites in rural communities across the Americas. His book records their different strategies for living in the midst of the modern world and their philosophy that life is best when it is kept simple.
