Both storytelling and the Amish are deeply rooted in America. In a world without television or video games, in a world where men gather at the general store and neighbors visit on farmhouse porches, storytelling is an art. Out of this tradition come these amusing tales, enjoyed by many who just happen to go to church in a buggy.Welcome to the life of the Amish....and the humanity we all share.
