In Born Amish we learn about Ruth Irene Garrett s early life as a child growing up in the Amish farming community of Kalona, Iowa: school, games and chores; work, crafts and foods; clothing, farming and tumbling about with many brothers and sisters. We learn about the expectations for girls and boys in Amish families, of social roles and understandings about courtship and marriage, about adult baptism and a life of faith in the Amish Church. Ms. Garrett's life narrative is supported and enhanced by regional historian Deborah Morse-Kahn, whose explanations of the Amish faith and culture make this book a wonderful read for anyone interested in learning more about the Amish in America.
