"This is a short pamphlet about the Amish written in the 1930s by A.M. Aurand, Jr., a local Pennsylvania writer who self-published a number of similar booklets. Written in a conversational style, this outsider account is sympathetic and provides a surprising amount of detail about Amish and Mennonite religious beliefs and practices. Because Amish life is deeply conservative, this treatment remains useful for understanding their culture, even though it was written decades ago." (Quote from sacred-texts.com)
