A View from the Buggy

Eicher, Jerry S. Miller, Nathan. A View from the Buggy: True and Inspiring Stories of the Amish life. Eugene, OR: Harvest House Publishers. 2014.

SUMMARY:
buggyWith Amish experience, both authors collect over thirty short stories and reminiscences shared by Amish men and women. Whether it be a barn raising, special events, animal antics, celebrations of life and death, family occurrences or food memories, each story is told with grace, love, heart and sometimes tears. Such a cozy peek at Amish life is sure to enlighten and slow the pace…

A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS:
Being raised an Amish boy (Jerry Eicher) and being a member of the Old Order Amish (Nathan Miller), both men are more than qualified to assemble all the recollections told and deliver them in a beautiful book. With each shared story only 2-3 pages in length, snippets can be read, enjoyed, mulled over and appreciated. Each brief chapter begins with a Bible verse relevant to the following story. Pieces of Amish life can be learned and envisioned. This book would be perfect for anyone interested in the Amish way of life.

RATING:
4.5 (out of 5) pennies
