In his objective and unromanticized treatment, Kraybill reveals how and why the Amish live the way they do; he comes across as someone who obviously has personal, firsthand knowledge of his subject and the desire (as well as the ability) to convey it directly, succinctly, and interestingly. Reading this takes me back (both in time and geographically) to Lancaster County and to many pleasant summer days spent among good, honest, down-to-earth people, when the little crossroad villages of Intercourse and Bird-in-Hand still catered to the daily needs of hardworking locals rather than to the curiosity of busloads of gawking tourists.
I highly recommend this book to all who want to learn what life is like for folks whose "plain" lifestyle (regarded as quaint or old-fashioned by many) attests not only to their faith in God, but to their daily commitment to that faith. Learning about THEIR lives may even help us to see OUR lives in a new and different light.
Their are several photos included which added to the text.
