An engaging, colorful story by Ulrich Eggers of the Woodcrest Society of Brothers community near Rifton, New York. 

Humorous and informative accounts of everyday life at Woodcrest are interspersed with graphic accounts of the history of the bruderhof movement begining in 1920 postwar Germany.

The Society of Brothers with more than 1,000 members in four locations are now affiliated with the Hutterites who live in approximately 300 colonies in western United States and Canada. Of Anabaptist origins, the Hutterites have practiced Christian communal living since the 1500s.
