"Reinhart is of an easily recognizable type: Pennsylvania-German thrifty, hardworking, self-sufficient. never wanting to owe anyone anything."
"'They worked to live,' Bitler said of the Reinharts. 'What they grew, they lived off of. They sold eggs, beef, grain; used mules early on; cut and raked hay by hand. Never got stuff from the government; no subsidies.'"
