Product Description

Plain and Amish is unique among books on the Amish. The author has found a way to help the reader enter into the life of an Amish community experience with them their special moments at home, at work, in school, in worship: their hopes and fears, their fortitude and foibles, their keen wisdom and admonitions, their conclusions about the whirlwind and insatiable society of modernity.

Publisher's Description

Bernd G. Langin combines sprightly sketches of Amish origins with charming reports from his months of living with an Amish family in Indiana. Langin is able to explain many aspects of Amish life because of his grasp of their Swiss-German language and their European customs. He sees the Amish example of cohesive faith and life as an alternative to modern pessimism.
