Prince Albert SK Polka Dot Press 2007 0978340507 / 9780978340506 First Edition; First Printing Hardcover Fine in Near Fine dust jacket 
Only slight wear to book & dustjacket ; A bright, solid book, dustjacket in Mylar, unclipped.; 8.60 X 5.70 X 0.90 inches; 203 pages; Mary-Ann Kirkby spent the first ten years of her life in a Hutterite Colony in Manitoba, Canada. "Your mother and father are running away,said a voice piercing the warm air.I froze and turned toward home.To a Hutterite, nothing is more shamefulthan that word, running away, Weglaufen...In 1969, Ann-Maries parents did the unthinkable. They left a Hutterite colony in Canada with seven children, and little else, to start a new life. Overnight, the family was thrust into a society they did not understand and which knew little of their unique culture. The transition was overwhelming. Desperate to be accepted, ten-year-old Ann-Marie was forced to deny her heritage in order to fit in with her peers. I Am Hutterite chronicles her quest to reinvent herself as she comes to terms with the painful circumstances that led her family to leave community life. Rich with memorable characters and vivid descriptions, this ground-breaking narrative shines a light on intolerance, illuminating the simple truth that beneath every human exterior beats a heart longing for understanding and acceptance." Mary-Ann's transition into popular culture is both heartbreaking and hilarious.
