Out of place in modern America, yet powerfully reminiscent of the American past, the Old Order Amish inspire curiosity and admiration. But Amish life is far from the quaint existence often portrayed in conventional picture books. This book details the rigors of hard work, the strength of family and community, the discipline of religion, and the ingenious compromises with modernity. Color photographs.
