A History of the Amish (Revised and Updated)
The Amish, one of America's most intriguing peoples, have survived for over 300 years! While much has been written on them, little has appeared about their history. This book brings together in one volume a thorough history of the Amish people. From their beginnings in Europe through their settlement in North America, they have struggled to maintain their beliefs and traditions in often hostile settings. More information below.
Written by Steven M. Nolt, one of the nation's foremost scholars on the Amish, Mennonite, and other Anabaptist communities.
Just a few of the many challenges to the Amish church through the years:
- Atlantic crossing
- Westward migration
- Military conscription
- Compulsory school laws
Caught in the currents and conflicts of national life, the Amish have remained a distinct people in America's melting pot.

I also really appreciate your time looking at shipping costs for me, and calling me! I was thinking how rare that is, a lot of people would either just give up if they couldn't get an email back, or would contact and say no overseas shipping.
I've received my items and am very satisfied with their condition. The book is exactly what I ordered and anxious to begin reading it.
