A Canadian Prairie Classic!

I Am Hutterite, is an award winning, national bestselling book. It takes readers into the heart of a Hutterite Colony on the Canadian Prairies and chronicles the author's unique upbringing in what had been for readers a closed world. Rich with vivid imagery and lively characters, I Am Hutterite captured readers imagination and became a sensation when first published in 2007.

The Hutterites arrived in Canada 100 years ago and have just celebrated their landmark centennial, yet their culture and way of life remains a mystery to many Canadians. Choosing to be the quiet of the land, Hutterites rarely speak out on issues outside their social group and shun being photographed. Yet this quiet group contribute over $3 billion annually to the Canadian economy and are considered by historians to be the finest example of communal life in the modern world. Like the Amish, the Hutterites broke from the Catholic church during the 16th century. But unlike the Amish, the Hutterites utilize modern farming technology and equipment, live communally, and eschew private ownership. The majority of the 55,000 Hutterites in North America live on Canada's prairie provinces.

Mary-Ann Kirkby is an award-winning journalist, author and professional speaker. A gifted story-teller, Kirkby delights audiences with her deeply personal story of growing up on a Hutterite Colony in Western Canada. Kirkby lives in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan, with her husband Gordon and their son, Levi.
