About the Author

Linda Egenes has written about the Amish for Cobblestone, Plain, the Iowa Source, and the Plain Reader. She is an adjunct faculty member at Maharishi University of Management in Fairfield, Iowa. Vermont artist Mary Azarian won the Caldecott Medal in 1999 for her illustrations in Snowflake Bentley.


"Visits with the Amish invites the reader to experience glimpses into the daily life of the Old Order Amish and gives a full sense of what it means to be Amish. Conversations about milking, cooking in the summer kitchen, quilting, and more capture in their own words their heartfelt commitment to home, school, community, and customs."--Martha Moore Davis, author, Sarah's Seasons: An Amish Diaryand Conversation
"Visits with the Amish is as gentle and open as the lives of the people it chronicles. The detailed mini-portraits are compassionate yet as candid and observant as anything written about the plain people that I have read. By honestly sketching the little things of everyday Amish culture, Egenes manages to capture the faithful heart of this community of believers."--Scott Savage, author, A Plain Life: Walking My Belief
"Direct, respectful, and informative, Visits with the Amish takes us into the very homes and businesses of the plain people. There we enter a culture so different from the American mainstream that we are forced to examine our own spiritual beliefs, identities, and values. This slim, quiet book should assume a big place on the bookshelves of anyone interested in anthropology, religion, folklore, or sustainable living."--Mary Swander, author, Out of This World: A Journey of Healing
