Authors Bontrager, Mast, and Yoder, writers hailing from Indiana Amish country, have completed their first book “Wilderness Odyssey”: a gripping and potent memoir filled with a plethora of emotion and a tone of honesty that is unforgettable.

Life with the Amish isn’t always milking cows, shucking corn and baking apple pies. Travel alongside these eight Indiana youth/newlyweds on their two-week expedition deep in the mountains of Colorado. They encounter some very unexpected happenings that affect them profoundly, as recorded by their own pens ─ sometimes hilarious, sometimes hair-raising incidents ─ from the top of the Sears (Willis) Tower to the top of the Rockies.

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Bontrager, Mast, and Yoder’s poignant tale offers the reader a rare glimpse into a different aspect of Amish life seldom seen by the public. Watch as they handle a sudden case of culture shock.

Thinking about taking a vacation in the mountains to get away from it all? Read this group’s account to get a sneak preview of what to expect. But then, readers might not meet up with a TV reporter’s microphone thrust at them ─ or realize the sun is setting and they are on the wrong side of the mountain, alone, with no clue in which direction camp is.

Readers who wish to experience this gripping work can purchase “Wilderness Odyssey” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
