About this title


“The Amish – Photographs of an American Treasure” is a beautiful, serene glimpse of Old Order Amish families living and thriving in mid-Michigan. The photographs were taken over 25 years ago but they haven’t changed; we have. They love God first. They love this country – it gave them a place to go when they were persecuted. They love their group, their family and finally themselves. Their first duty is to God. Secondly, they must be a village to survive. The entire society depends on these premises. This photographic essay gives the reader an insight into a society which is simple, yet complicated. This book will give you a glimpse of a simpler time. Take time to appreciate the fog rolling over a field, a child’s smile, the story of the mothers and their babies. It will also show you how hard it is to be Amish.

About the Author:

BIOGRAPHY David L. Petty was born in Pennsylvania in 1944 and moved to Midland, Michigan in 1955. He is a graduate of Northwood University with degrees in business and liberal arts. He began displaying his photographs in 1972 and has exhibited in 30 states, over 400 art shows, and was the recipient of over 100 awards. His photographs have been purchased for museum, private, and corporate collections. This Amish study is the only time he focused his cameras on people. He and his wife, Sandra, along with their many rescued dogs and cats, reside on 12 wooded, hilltop acres overlooking Lake Michigan outside Charlevoix, Michigan.
