By Shelby Miller Ruch
Arcadia Publishing, $21.99
With historic photographs drawn from archives and residents, Ruch documents the Harmony Society's first home in America, established by German Lutheran separatist George Rapp in 1804. Honoring the architecture that reflects the Butler County town's German heritage, the book also celebrates its small-town pleasures, many centered on Harmony's history.
