Synopsis: Joe Mackall has lived with the Amish for more than 16 years. And not just any Amish - his neighbors belong to a particularly conservative community that rejects not only electricity, but also indoor plumbing, padded chairs, and the tradition of rumspringa - the "running around" period some sects allow their teens. In this account, Mackall chronicles the experiences of one particular family as it struggles to maintain its Amish identity. Discussing the virtues and absurdities of their way of life, Mackall is refreshingly candid, voicing his criticism when a girl dies in a buggy accident caused in part because of the sect's rejection of safety lights. It's an insightful and informative window into a community that's often misunderstood. --- from book's back cover
