The Herrs begins with the true story of the persecuted Swiss Anabaptist Herr family who left the Palatinate area of Germany in 1710. After a 10-week delay in London before boarding the ship Mary Hope, they finally set sail across the deep dangerous ocean. Settling in western Chester Co., Pa., they first obtained a warrant for 10,000 acres of land near the Indians— the first Mennonite settlement in what was to later become Lancaster Co., Pa. Historical fiction. (176pp. illus. Masthof Press, reprinted 2014.)
