Summary:
The Amish emigrated from Europe to America in 1693 to find religious freedom. Devout Christians, they settled primarily in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, but also now reside in Ohio, Indiana and parts of Canada. Service to God is the most important aspect of Amish life, and they believe that technological progress only increases worldly temptation. Ironically, their simple way of life has spawned a multimillion-dollar tourist industry rampant with commercialism. This program examines their values, their work ethic, their opinion of the tourists they attract and their ability to sustain their cultural and religious beliefs in a world different from their own. Part of the Multicultural Peoples of North America Video Series, a compelling collection that celebrates the heritage of different cultural groups in North America.

Only available in the US.
