Building a West Texas home

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

IT DOESN'T LOOK much like the promised land, these desolate High Plains of West Texas, dotted with natural gas wells and inhabited by rattlesnakes and jackrabbits. Red dirt piles up against fences alongside fl at blacktopped roads used only by occasional pickup trucks. But for thousands of hard-working Mennonites, the land outside Seminole, Texas, has turned out to be their long-sought haven from religious persecution.
