Overview

This beautiful book of art photography provides 145 never-before seen candid views of Amish life in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. See Amish families at work, play, and socializing in their society. The powerful photography speaks for itself and gives you a professional photographer's view of their compelling world. The Old Order Amish settled in Pennsylvania in 1737. For over 250 years they have thrived, doubling their population every 20 years. These Amish Christians worship in their homes every other Sunday. You could not ask for better neighbors. They are always ready and willing to help in times of need. Some Amish are volunteer firemen. As you will see in these pages, in this technology filled 21st century, the Amish remain steadfast to their traditions, driving horse drawn carriages, maintaining businesses, farms, and homes without electricity, and farming with mule and horse power. Enjoy this unusual look into the unique world of Amish life.
