This is an engaging book about how and why this utopian society has succeeded. Described in detail are the Amish social life and customs, religious services, methods of farming, nationwide communications network, views on education, and medical insurance provisions. This book goes a long way toward explaining and dispelling some of the myths about the Amish and their life-style. Two chapters provide a careful and intimate look at the education dispute that made Iowa's Amish headline material a few years ago. ; 9-1/4" Tall; 188 pages. Seller Inventory # 20815
