"This book tells the story of Altona, settled by a small group of pioneers on an original settlement on the prairies in the 1870s. The old Altona Village, which was settled in the 1880s, graduallly evolved into a modern town. It is an absorbing story well told. The author has researched her book thoroughly from original as well as secondary sources and supplemented this with oral interviews. The book is well illustrated, and is complete with index, bibliography, glossary, tables, and figures. It is more than a chronological story. Against the background of history, the author has also sketched the struggle of the Mennonite pioneers to maintain their identity, and at the same time adapt to the current and changing conditions of society around them. And in it we also learn what it is to be Canadian and at the same time to be part of a minority group."
