Amish Life : A Photographic Celebration of Modern Amish Life, Hardback Book

Amish Life : A Photographic Celebration of Modern Amish Life Hardback

Description

Meet Today's Amish This gorgeous photographic study of modern Amish life offers a sensitive but realistic look at contemporary Amish experience and culture.

With fascinating insight on how Amish live and how they function in a technologically advanced world, it explains the ongoing significance of Amish dress, architecture, and customs.

Dr. Daniel Rodriguez, a Lancaster County, Pennsylvania-based photojournalist with a deep understanding of the Plain communities, provides stunning color photography.

The book covers both Amish and Old Order Mennonites--the only two groups of Americans who still travel by horse and buggy.

This is a book that avoids easy stereotypes. For readers who may struggle to understand folk who farm without tractors and live without electricity, Amish Life will be an eye-opener.

A realistic, candid look inside the one-dimensional tourist stereotype.

The significance of uniformity in Amish dress and vehicle styles.

Why some Plain families don't use electricity... and why some do. How to distinguish Amish-owned houses from non-Amish structures.

The importance of recreation and social gatherings in the Amish community.
