Many of the English [non-Amish] folk tolerate them well, but others do not. You see the clash on the highways when an impatient motorist dislikes getting trapped behind a slow buggy.
But it shows up elsewhere. There is always tension and conflict at the cultural interface, and disputes are common. Havill, whose 18th Posadas County mystery, One Perfect Shot, was published in January by Poisoned Pen, gives an example of the changes and damages wrought by the intrusion of a physical border. It used to be a neighborhood of dirt lanes and apple trees and folks walking to work—on either side of the border. In Kate Shugak, Stabenow has created a character who is ideally constructed to deal with the divisions rife in Alaskan communities.
Because of this, she is able to cross cultural, geographical, and ethnic divides in a way few of her generation can. All these authors incorporate social issues into their novels, some of which are unique or peculiar in the way they manifest themselves in their region, but which are also universally recognizable in principle. Her fictional Suultutaq Mine is based on the recently discovered Pebble Mine located upstream of the best commercial salmon-fishing area in the world, Bristol Bay.
Maron also focuses on social issues in her novels. Among those she has dealt with are integration, migrant workers, and land development. Gaus uses three chief protagonists in his novels that help illumine the relationships between the Amish and the English: Professor Michael Branden, well-known and well respected by the Amish; Pastor Caleb Troyer of the independent Church of Christ, the most sympathetic to Amish ways; and Sheriff Bruce Robertson, who is considerably less sympathetic.
While the encroaching modern world particularly affects the Amish, they also share some of the same problems all communities are facing. They also have much larger families. Mayor has dealt with numerous familiar issues in his novels including, for example, the conflict between developers and preservationists.
While all of these authors use humor at least occasionally and demonstrate their considerable wit in various ways, Joan Hess, whose 16th Arly Hanks mystery, The Merry Wives of Maggody, was published in by Minotaur, is the only one of them who uses humor as a principal ingredient in all of her Hanks mysteries.
In the little town of Maggody, Ark. Arly knows all of them, although she often underestimates their capacity for the absurd. I see it as a microcosm, okay, possibly mutant, that in its peculiar way reflects the reality of any neighborhood. No group arrives and subsequently leaves with all of the original members.
For example, in Miracles in Maggody , televangelist Malachi Hope arrives with dreams of opening a Christian theme park and holding laser-lit revival meetings. While these authors have earned the designation of regional mystery authors—casting a strong light and intelligent focus on one particular area of the country—they deal with universal issues of humanity even when they cloak them in Amish garb or Ozark humor or some other guise.
Which is to say that their appeal is far wider than mere regionalism and deserves an audience as large and varied as their combined scope. Many readers date the beginning of Florida crime writing to , with the appearance of the first of John D. In truth, mysteries set in the state were a pulp staple long before the introduction of Travis McGee and his Ft. For twelve years, Mary Buffett was part of the Buffett inner circle.
