The Amish base their daily lives on the principles of faith, brotherhood, and community. Deeply devout, they keep their traditions alive by separating themselves from the modern world, living close to nature, and tending the land that God has given them. This spirited volume, illustrated with 122 beautiful full-color photographs, explores and celebrates Amish history, beliefs, and culture. Sections include: introduction; discipline and humility: the church in daily life; sacrifice and faith: the home and the farm; celebrations and rites of passage; brotherhood: the comfort of community; and the temptations of modern life.
