The newest release: Abraham P Harder - The Legacy
The story of one European family, of many ethnic origins, pioneering across three continents. It’s a story of faith carrying them through persecution, disease, intrigues of government, physical violence and deprivation.
Transforming the southern Ukraine into the breadbasket of Russia, the Mennonites struggle to live out their faith in rapidly changing Czarist Russia. The political strife of 19th century St Petersburg and the aristocracy compels many Mennonite families to make a costly decision to emigrate.
The story becomes personal as they arrive in the U.S. to contend with Indians, drought, dust storms, and homesteading. Can they find a place to raise a family and will they be able to build a community of faith wherever they settle?
