  • 2000

Imagine saving every chatty family letter which comes into your mailbox. Edna Stauffer Bauman did. These letters form the basis for this book. Follow the life of Amos S. Bauman (1854-1911) and his children and grandchildren through letters written to his son Israel and Israel's son William. Amos was born in Waterloo Co., Ont., and later moved to Iowa and then to Alberta. He was a bishop in the Stauffer Mennonite Church and later joined the Mennonite Brethren in Christ. (250pp. illus. Author, 2001.)
