This children’s book celebrates the 300th anniversary of the first settlement in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania (1710-2010). Follow the tumultuous and true story of the first settlers as events begin in the Swiss canton of Zurich in the 1500s. When Anabaptists, such as Jacob Graf (1618-1683), were forced to meet secretly, they fled to southern Germany. In 1710, a small group of Mennonites left Germany and sailed to America. They started the first settlement in what later became Lancaster County, finally gaining the long-sought freedom to worship God in their chosen way.

Cost: $16 plus $3 shipping. (Available November, 2009.)
