Overview
This book reveals and describes the genuine virtues and values that best depict the Old Order Amish to non-Amish readers. The estimated 225,000 Old Order, horse and buggy driving, no church house, Amish Americans have been largely overlooked by historians and social scientists. Authors who have written about the Amish generally view them as people of great integrity and goodwill, but have often exploited their uniqueness. This book is concerned with their positive, genuine values, ways and customs as observed by those best qualified to do so - the author as a former Old Order Amish sect member along with Amish children and adults who are current participates in the Amish faith.
