Chasing the Amish Dream: My Life as a Young Amish Bachelor - Loren Beachy

Chasing the Amish Dream: My Life as a Young Amish Bachelor

Loren Beachy

  • 1299


Life in author Loren Beachy’s Indiana Amish community brims with old-fashioned box socials, smart-alecky students, and pranks involving pink duct tape and black pepper. Meet the young women who manage to be late for church twice in one day and the man who plans to fight drowsiness by jogging beside his horse and buggy. Cheer for Beachy and his cousins in cut-throat baseball games, and join community members as they surround and support a family in their loss. With the witty warmth of a small-town storyteller, Beachy invites readers into his life as a creative, wise, and wisecracking Old Order Amish schoolteacher and auctioneer.  (192pp. MennoMedia, 2014.)
