This Item is not Amish-made
Lancaster County, Pennsylvania hosts the oldest Amish community in North America. When most people think of the Amish, it is the Lancaster County settlement with their grey buggies that comes to mind.
Financial pressures have forced the majority of the Amish to forsake farming for more lucrative business enterprises. Business owners tend to adopt technology more rapidly than farmers, leading to a mini-industrial revolution. With more adults working in industries, family dynamics are beginning to change.
Buller's camera captures the changes sweeping across the Amish landscape. His interviews with authors/professors/researches Donald Kraybill and Steven Nolt (both whose works we carry in our Bookstore) provide uncommon insight into the Amish mindset.
In addition, we were surprised to see the candid interviews with a number of Amish people, who most often shun the camera. At the end, a barn raising is featured that is almost next-door to us!
Experience Amish farm life, family life, business enterprises, childhood, school, worship, horse cultures, business practices, barn raising, rumspringa (teen-age running around time), Florida vacations, women's roles and more. Includes Amish response to Nickel Mines tragedy.
