"The simplicity of rural life appears in vivid detail in this account of German Texas heritage as it was lived in the early 1900s. Gilbert Jordan describes a way of life familiar to much of rural Texas at that time, but he also gives a heartwarming and fascinating look at the special ways and separate culture of Mason County's German Methodists. Holidays, foods, chores, songs, poems, proverbs, prayers, riddles, and the linguistic idiosyncrasies of the pietistic Germans who left Fredericksburg in the 1850s are intertwined through this charming narrative."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
