The Amish are people steeped in customs and traditions based on living a simple, quiet existence. Get to know Lancaster County's Amish through amusing and entertaining folk tales and legends. Seven stories highlight how the Amish and other Pennsylvania Dutch residents live; there's even a "true" ghost story for your enjoyment. Learn how John the Blacksmith foils the Devil, laugh at the shenanigans of Eilenshpiggel, read about the legends behind graven images, and enjoy the Pennsylvania German humor with stories about the Ephrata man and his tooth and the Devil-based stories from Lehigh County residents. Stories feature 30 images of furniture, quilts, Amish toys, and other items made by Pennsylvania German artisans, with text explaining their significance today.
