Summary:A comprehensive study of the deeply religious Amish folks of the Pennsylvania Dutch country who turn their backs on the world and progress in order to practice the scriptural virtues of holiness, humility and hard work. This film has been digitized because it has a high level of Vinegar Syndrome (chemical deterioration). That condition will prevent any captured images from being 100% perfect. Our goal is to present the content of the film in a digital format that is as good and the least distracting as possible.
Century:1901-2000
