Imagine a world without telephones or television, without cars or electricity. In this world the
women wear long dresses. There is no industry. Everyone works on farms and travels by horse
or on foot. This is the world of the Amish people. They live in Pennsylvania in the United States.
The Amish are farmers and they base their life on the Bible. There were no tractors or telephones
in the Bible and there are no tractors or telephones in the Amish villages today.
Amish clothes are very plain. The men and boys wear dark jackets and trousers, plain shirts and
hats. The women wear long dresses and small bonnets. They have long hair and they don’t wear
any makeup and jewellery.
The Amish live in large families and everyone helps with the work. The day starts when the sun
rises and it ends when the sun sets. The men and boys work in the fields and the women and girls
work in the house. Nobody works on Sundays because everyone goes to church.
But life of the Amish is not all work. They have a lot of village parties. They don’t dance or play
musical instruments, but they sing hymns and have a good time. There is no crime and no
pollution. Nobody is poor and nobody is lonely.
