More About Pennsylvania Dutch Country by Tom Range; Tom Range Sr
 
 
 
Overview
The people of the Pennsylvania Dutch Country, the "plain people," avoid manifestations of modern culture, preferring to live a simple life in accordance with their interpretation of the Bible. The Old Order Amish are considered the most fundamentalist, shunning electric appliances, gasoline-powered vehicles, modern dress, and engaging primarily in agriculture. Since the Pennsylvania Dutch Country is a favored vacation destination, postcard publishers have produced scenes of the everyday life of the plain people since the beginning of the twentieth century. More than two hundred of these postcards are meticulously arranged and described in Pennsylvania Dutch Country.
