Join an Amish family as they set off in their buggy, passing fields of cornstalks, spinning windmills, and lines of flapping britches. A trip to town takes them to the general store, with its porch piled high with pumpkins, and down the street to choose a pattern for a wedding quilt. A lyrical text and vibrant oil paintings bring the world of the Amish to life.
