"From the Publisher:" People's Place Book #11. A study of three Amish homesteads: one in Lancaster County, PA, one in Holmes County, OH, and one in LaGrange County, IN. Stephen Scott - the author of Why Do They Dress That Way? and The Amish Wedding - examines the history and cultural development of a typical Amish house and barn : one in each of the three largest Amish communities in North America. Home is the center of Amish life, and all major life events happen there - births, weddings, visiting and church, retirement years, and death. This carefully researched work provides a behind-the-scenes look at events on three particular farms, as well as the strong ties Amish families have to the land, in general. 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 158 pages paperback.

          A study of three Amish homesteads: one in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, one in Holmes County, Ohio, and one in LaGrange County, Indiana. Scott examines the history and cultural development of a typical Amish house and barn, one in each of the three largest Amish communities in North America. Home is the center of Amish life and most life events:birth, marriage, daily work and play, retirement, and even death happen there.           Stephen Scott explores the history and cultural development of three Amish homesteads, each of which has been occupied by the current family of residence for at least four generations. The Stoltzfus Farm of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, the Yoder-Miller Farm of Holmes County, Ohio, the Bontrager-Miller Farm of LaGrange County, Indiana. Amish Houses and Barns also includes a photographic essay of typical Amish architecture in each of the three communities. Its numerous anecdotal stories,"Barn Fire," "The Farm Is Strip-Mined," and "Amish Style Graffiti", enhance the human story.
