In this new collection of poems, young readers experience a year in the lives of Plain People -- people in the Amish and Mennonite communities of Pennsylvania Dutch Country. Each season brings its own joys and challenges, yet it is the Plain People's trust in God and vision for how they should live that make their lives rich and satisfying.

Beautifully illustrated, A Humble Lift captures with warmth and appreciation the way of life and community strength of these unique groups of people.
