The Wasted Years: The Story of Yonie Kauffman . . . and the Rest of the Story

Joseph Stoll and John L. Yoder

  • 995


This is an account of a young Amish man living in the fertile farming area known as “Big Valley” in central Pennsylvania. He had a yearning to travel in search of a more satisfying lifestyle, leaving the area in 1902. A strange turn of events took place in the Valley during his absence. Jonathan E. Kauffman, known as “Yonie,” after 30 years returned home, hence the “Rest of the Story.” Yonie returned as a more humble and repentant man. Yes, the Lord did answer prayer for the wandering son. (101pp. illus. Author, 2016 updated reprint of 1993 edition.)
