What a delightful little book. I've often been interested in the Amish but found the other nonfiction books had too much information. I wanted to know the basics and it was tough to draw those out of the abundance of information. This was an easy, quick, and fun read.

This is an excellent book for anyone interested in the Amish and their way of life. I found it especially interesting since I have visited Lancaster County on several occasions.

When I read this book, I now understand what the language means for the Amish. It was a book just the size for my purse, so I carried it everywhere. I really enjoyed it. Thanks - Amish Life - francisLF
