Reviews - What do customers think about From Dawn to Dusk: Memoirs of an Amish/Mennonite Farm Boy?

A Journey into Rural America of the 1930s and 1940s  Mar 26, 2004
I loved it. This book should be read by the light of a kerosene lamp next to a potbelly stove that's heating water for a Saturday night bath. Will Troyer transports the reader to a simpler time. His descriptions of life in Amish and Mennonite communities resonate with anyone who grew up in rural America in the 1930s and 1940s. From his colorful commentary about a stubborn horse to the pranks he and his friends played at Halloween, the author skillfully portrays his boyhood. By describing the old swimmin' hole, the excitement of turning on a wall switch and seeing electric lights illuminate the family's home for the first time, and the hardships and good times of his boyhood, Troyer offers a magic carpet ride into the past.
Well written book about Amish life  Nov 14, 2003
The author tells it like it was. Having been raised in the same time period and under similar circumstances, I appreciated the honesty and straightforward writing style. The very accurate portrayal of the Amish/Mennonite farming community with lack of hyperbole was refreshing.
While the author does not expound greatly on his philosophy, his love of nature and the environment is evident. Also evident is the way his love of nature was nurtured by his early life in a farming community.
A good read for anyone interested rural living as it used to be and a little bit about present farming practices.
