Amish Confidential
by Lebanon Levi Stoltzfus and Ellis Henican




Overview -
Go behind the beards in this daring insider's look at the curious Amish subculture of Pennsylvania Dutch Country

Is the "plain and simple" life really so plain and simple? How do the Amish live without cars? Electricity? NFL football? The truth is, they don't. More than fifty million people have watched "Lebanon" Levi Stoltzfus in Discovery Channel's hit show Amish Mafia, where he dispenses justice and keeps the peace among the seemingly quiet, insular Amish people of Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Now, he reveals what it's really like to be Amish. Not the buggies, bonnets, and beards image the tight-knit community has portrayed for hundreds of years to the relentless curiosity of outsiders. The real-deal, day-to-day life--the good and the bad--all the dirty little secrets you're not supposed to know. From Wi-Fi "pleasure huts," to prostitutes, to marijuana and cocaine, you'll never look at the Amish the same.

It isn't easy keeping your feet planted firmly in the 1800s when the rest of the world is centuries ahead. Not even for the most God-fearing among us. The Amish have their own unique way of doing everything, and the lengths they will go to indulge in modern conveniences--and hide their indiscretions--will shock you. What have you been dying to know? How about what really happens when someone is shunned? Or whether the Amish pay taxes? Do they ever try to "pass" as English (in other words, non-Amish)? How rampant is illicit sex in such a repressed society? Can individuals make themselves stand out despite the strict rules? Why would the Amish take such risks when the punishment is eternal damnation?

"Lebanon" Levi blows the top off the buggy with this scandalous insider's expos , proving that even the Amish don't always practice what they preach.
