Item Description...
Few photographers can boast of acceptance by and access to a remote Amish community, but Bill Coleman has had the good fortune to spend the past 25 years capturing its daily events in beautiful full-color images. From breadmaking to haymaking to community barn raisings, he takes readers on a visual journey through a Pennsylvanian valley largely untouched by tourists and the trappings of modern existence. Whether it's a buggy traversing a winter farmscape, a woman quilting, or a group of children at play, Coleman captures with a perceptive eye the one unique and telling gesture that reveals the character of an individual and a community. The images gathered here--authentic in their subject matter and utterly simple in their presentation--celebrate the beauty and grace of a time-honored way of life.

The Simple Life!  Sep 16, 2007
The Amish truly feel that it is a priviledge to live the Simple Life. They do not feel as though they are sacrificing at all. This book is informative and well written and an enjoyable read. I feel that all books are over-priced though and for that reason I am only giving four stars!
The Gift To Be Simple  Aug 6, 2007
THis book was so beutiful! It really gives meaning to the phrase "A pictures Worth a Thousand words". I have been looking at a lot of amish books lately, and this one would have to have been the most beutiful one I've seen so far. The only downside is that there are few words, so if you are looking for an informational book, this isn't your book. But If you just like to stare at the simple yet beutiful faces, homes, schools and animals You have found the jackpot!
simple life  Jul 22, 2007
A simple book and a delightful book to study the perfect quality of the pictures that tell the full story. This is a book that you pick up, open it at any page, look at the picture, close the eyes and allow your mind to wander back to that simple way of life when people and not things mattered. Everyone should have a copy.
The Gift to Be Simple  Aug 7, 2005
After a illness and losing EVERYTHING (including my health), I value the simplier things in life and deeply appreciate having a book with Bill Coleman's photographs.
Rare photos of Amish children and adults but no text.  Feb 19, 2005
It's not often that Amish children or adults are seen in photos because it is against their religion for adult members of the church to have photos taken which show their face (their interpretation of the Bible considers this vanity). It's a little questionable then that there are photos of a few Amish adult faces. The photographer mentions that when he first started taking these photos, he didn't know it was forbidden in the Amish religion. The Amish farm kids (not members of the church yet) got the OK from their parents to be in a few photos, according to the photographer. Some of the photos show the backs of children only, dressed in the simple Amish clothes and walking to school barefoot or working on the farm. Many of the photos are shot at quite a distance, with the photographer apparently standing on a public road in Amish country and snapping photos. There are many pictures of Amish barns and farmhouses. It's a nice book to flip through, but because there is no wording on the pages (beyond a quick intro in the front) it doesn't warrant a second and third look. My favorite Amish book is by Elizabeth Coblentz and includes full-page photos plus copies of her columns in an Amish newspaper about life on her family's farm.
