Edsel Burdge Jr. and Samuel L. Horst tell the stories of three centuries of faith and life among the Washington County (Md.), and Franklin County (Pa.) Mennonites. From small beginnings in colonial American settlements, issues such as personal spiritual commitment, corporate accountability, nonconformity, and peace have been constants. This history describes in detail the particulars of that struggle as well as recounting stories illustrative of community life in general.

Review by: Edward Ayers, Dean of the College and Graduate School of the Arts and Sciences, University of Virginia - May 15, 2004

“Edsel Burdge and Samuel Horst have written a first-rate history of the Mennonites of the Cumberland Valley. Their scholarship is remarkably thorough and deep; their writing is strong, clear, and honest.”

Review by: Sam Steiner, Librarian and Archivist, Conrad Grebel University College - April 28, 2004

“More than a history, Burdge and Horst have crafted a genealogy of the Mennonite community in Washington County, Md., and Franklin County, Pa. Their narrative is set firmly within the larger Mennonite and Pietist context, and will long stand as the definitive work on this small, but vital community.”
