The Amish: Photographs of an American Treasure by David L. Petty
The Amish – Photographs of an American Treasure is a beautiful, serene glimpse of Old Order Amish families living and thriving in mid-Michigan. The photographs were taken over 25 years ago but they haven’t changed; we have. They love God first. They love this country – it gave them a place to go when they were persecuted. They love their group, their family and finally themselves. Their first duty is to God. Secondly, they must be a village to survive. The entire society depends on these premises. This photographic essay gives the reader an insight into a society which is simple, yet complicated. This book will give you a glimpse of a simpler time. Take time to appreciate the fog rolling over a field, a child’s smile, the story of the mothers and their babies. It will also show you how hard it is to be Amish.
