Bernd G. Langin combines sprightly sketches of Amish origins with charming reports from his months of living with an Amish family in Indiana. Langin is able to explain many aspects of Amish life because of his grasp of their Swiss-German language and their European customs. He sees the Amish example of cohesive faith and life as an alternative to modern pessimism.
