Description
 
This book is a perceptive look at the traditions and values of the plain people and the Pennsylvania Dutch, especially focusing on those who live in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. The author's own roots are in this tradition, enabling him to evaluate the plain people from "both sides."

Specific issues treated in this book include simplicity, peace, community, service, and the peculiar dilemmas posed for the plain people by such temptations as growing tobacco and using electricity. The book offers a provocative study of both the changes which have faced the religious community in this century and the witness of a people who refuse to let the world cast them into its mold.
