Summary
"The Amish, one of America's most intriguing peoples, have survived for 300 years! While much has been written on the Amish, little has appeared about their history. This newly revised and updated book brings together in one volume a thorough history of the Amish people. From their beginnings in Europe through their settlement in North America, the Amish have struggled to maintain their beliefs and traditions in often hostile settings. Atlantic crossings, westward migration, military conscription, and compulsory school laws were just a few of the many challenges to the Amish church through the years. Caught in the currents and conflicts of national life, the Amish have remained a distinct people in America's melting pot."--P. [4] of cover
Summary
Traces the history of the Amish people, from their origins in Europe to their emigration to the United States, and describes how they have met the challenges of life in America
