Jack Thiessen is an educated tale spinner. This book contains an entire legacy of Mennonite Short Stories, from bragging to preaching, from laughing out loud to consolation and love and, also, the saddest of tears. One does well in reading a story a day, for a week or a month, for that matter, and enjoying the humour and the wisdom of a community coming alive as never before.   Jack Thiessen ess een jegromda Resserieta. Een gaunzet Oawgoot von Mennonitische Kort - jeschichte send enn dissem Buak too finje: von puche bett predje, von loosbrädre bett Troost enn Leew, enn uck de trurichste Trohne. Eena sull aum basten eene Jeschicht aum Dach lese, eene Wätjlang, ooda een Moonatlang, enn doamett den Spoß enn uck dee Weisheit von onse läwendje Jemeenschauft jeneete soo auls niemols verhäa.
