Book Signing - Hutterites

Posted: Updated:

Taking our car to go grab a bite to eat, spending a weekend at the lake, or going out with friends on weekends seem like no big deal to most of us.

But when you grow up in a colony that doesn't allow these things, they seem like a pretty big step.

Groups of people known as "Hutterites" are scattered around Canada, and upper Midwest United States.

They live in small colonies with very strict rules.

So, nine Hutterite escapees came together in the past year to tell their stories of escaping, and losing family ties because of it.

The nine had a book signing YESTERDAY at Home Sweet Home in Minot, and talked to visitors about what they've discovered since fleeing.

(Sheryl and Junia Waldner, Ex-Hutterites) "We can do things like go on vacation, we've water skied, instruments, and things that we could never do in a colony to the point where we didn't even desire them anymore in the colony."

Their book, "Hutterites, The Nine" is now for sale at Home Sweet Home, and Barnes and Noble in Minot.
