Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: They travel the roads on a warm summer day, enjoying the summer breeze as they take in scenery along the way. Driving past woods and fields bordering rustic country roads, they raise their hands from time to time to acknowledge both neighbors and strangers, but most times they are lost in conversation while enjoying an unhurried ride.The sight of an Amish horse and buggy can be a romantic reminder of a simpler time, when life wasn't constantly propelling us forward. It may also serve as a contrast between the Amish world and the modern world around them.While the two worlds are distinctly different, the Amish and the modern world around them have learned how to coexist in great numbers throughout Clark County, WisconsinIt is difficult to make accurate generalizations about the Amish, as lifestyles and guidelines greatly differ among their districts.This book illustrates what one might expect to see among the peaceful Amish settlements residing in Clark County, Wisconsin.
