“A delightfully written, yet authoritative, brief account of the folk culture of one of America’s most interesting small minority groups. The Amish should do much to engender a fuller and more sympathetic understanding of the Amish way of life.” —George P. Murdock, Yale University “This booklet presents the Amish as not nearly so eccentric as the general public believes and pictures them as thrifty people who live well and love their religion, their families, their land.” —Durham (NC) Morning Herald “The Amish have always attracted popular interest because of their different dress and manner of living. Hostetler, born and reared among them, writes with authority about the Amish, explaining the reasons behind their customs and describing much of their way of life.” —The Pennsylvania Magazine of History and Biography “Answers a lot of questions and presents some incisive views.” —Lancaster (PA) New Era
