Living Without Electricity by Stephen Scott
Book DescriptionHow do the Amish get along without electric lights or appliances, computers, power tools, or their own phones? This book examines the Amish response to technology. Also, the role of invention among the Amish. This book tells how and why the Amish live without inventions other people take for granted: How do you light a room without electricity? How do you keep warm without centralized heating? What do you do for entertainment when you don't have TV? How do you get around without a car? How do you communicate when you don't have a phone? Living Without Electricity explains how the Amish cook and store food, pump water, wash clothes, and even run farms and businesses. It describes the practices of other Old Order groups in the United States, Canada, Mexico, and several South American countries.
