Item Description...
Plain and Amish is unique among books on the Amish. The author has found a way to help the reader enter into the life of an Amish community experience with them their special moments at home, at work, in school, in worship: their hopes and fears, their fortitude and foibles, their keen wisdom and admonitions, their conclusions about the whirlwind and insatiable society of modernity.

Publishers Description
Bernd G. Langin combines sprightly sketches of Amish origins with charming reports from his months of living with an Amish family in Indiana. Langin is able to explain many aspects of Amish life because of his grasp of their Swiss-German language and their European customs. He sees the Amish example of cohesive faith and life as an alternative to modern pessimism.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
a thruout story of amish lifestyle and culture  Jul 26, 1998
I took interest in the amish lifestyle visiting an amish area in Indiana. I bought Langins book in order to outweight the popular and tourist atmosphere there. And the book sure did that.

By now I have red the book twice and it is on my top ten of books you just need to read. Langin stayed with the amish and this book is a personal experience of amish farmlife mixed with detailed descibtions on the anabaptist history. His knowledge of the swiss german language adds a little extra to the book.

In short - my favourite
