A exquisite, small-size hardcover photo book with lyrical text. The color photographs from Amish life are striking, artistic, and full of energy. The book is built around a lyric entitled "Song of a People" by author Merle Good. Includes a short introduction to the Amish people, capturing their spirit and way of life. Small, exquisite, and beautiful. Belonging to a people is a precious thing. The Old Order Amish know this. They are sustained by an abiding sense of community, the spirit of historic faith, the call of discipline, and the joyful restraint of beauty. Yet life for the Amish is not a fairy tale. They, too, are visited by disappointment, grief, and failure. But, on balance, the embrace of community, the harvest after the toil, the peace from following God, and the promise in the eyes of the young people all lead to a deep sense of contentment
