This is a great picture style book for anybody who is interested in the basic lifestyle of the Amish. Filled with great photographs, the author does a nice job of explaining the interesting differences that the Amish enjoy from the "English". Not meant as a in-depth resource, but more of a casual coffee table style book. A nice book to add to your collection.

A quick view at the Amish people who I have observed on three different occasions when in the East. It is interesting to see a people keep their own traditions in a worldly time.
This author does a great job of writing historical books with beautiful photos of the settings taken today.
