Growing Up Amish: The Teenage Years - Richard A. Stevick

Growing Up Amish: The Teenage Years

Richard A. Stevick

  • 2800


In Growing Up Amish, the author reveals the world of Amish youth caught between the expectations of their community and the growing pressures and temptations that accompany adolescence. Drawing from a dozen years of research in more than seventy communities in fifteen states, he carefully details home life and school, social singings and wild parties, isolated settlements and Amish youth gangs, and courtship practices and wedding rituals. Stevick shows how the strong and distinct Amish identity is fostered by the entire community. (299pp. illus. index. hardcover with dust jacket. John Hopkins Univ. Press, 2007.)
