The Amish keep surprising their technology-programmed neighbors by keeping alive ways and beliefs that many modern Americans wish they could recapture.  In this colorful, updated documentary, Mennonite historian John Ruth takes us sympathetically into the Amish mindset.  Dr. John A. Hostetler, author of Amish Society, comments on the survival of an alternative to the kind of world we have made.  As the Amish increase in numbers, some of them migrate from homesteads in Pennsylvania toward more open farmland.  Those staying where the land is too crowded to farm have developed an amazing variety of cottage industries.  But all such changes are made very carefully, in order not to sacrifice spiritual covenant and community for the sake of convenience.  54-minutes.
