Book Summary:

On the surface, it appears that little has changed for Amish youth in the past decade: children learn to work hard early in life, they complete school by age fourteen or fifteen, and a year or two later they begin Rumspringa—that brief period during which they are free to date and explore the outside world before choosing whether to embrace a lifetime of Amish faith and culture. But the Internet and social media may be having a profound influence on significant numbers of the Youngie, according to Richard A. Stevick, who says that Amish teenagers are now exposed to a world that did not exist for them only a few years ago. Once hidden in physical mailboxes, announcements of weekend parties are now posted on Facebook. Today, thousands of Youngie in large Amish settlements are dedicated smartphone and Internet users, forcing them to navigate carefully between technology and religion. Updated photographs throughout this edition of Growing Up Amish include a screenshot from an Amish teenager's Facebook page. In the second edition of Growing Up Amish, Stevick draws on decades of experience working with and studying Amish adolescents across the United States to produce this well-rounded, definitive, and realistic view of contemporary Amish youth. Besides discussing the impact of smartphones and social media usage, he carefully examines work and leisure, rites of passage, the rise of supervised youth groups, courtship rituals, weddings, and the remarkable Amish retention rate. Finally, Stevick contemplates the potential of electronic media to significantly alter traditional Amish practices, culture, and staying power.

"Book one, Delusion is a record of how her parents met, married, and decided to follow The Elder. It details the trauma she experienced between the ages of four and six.

It records her childhood from age six to sixteen. Deliverance will show what transpired in the summer of 1964 when she was forced from the isolated cult environment--all she knew--and cast into a foreign world of culture shock all right here in America."--Book two, p. 4 of cover.

Book Summary:

Introduction by Don Yoder, PhD J. B. Fisher grew up in rural Lancaster County, Pennsylvania during the Great Depression and World War II. His memoir presents a unique story of coming-of-age in that time and place. Beginning with his parents' marriage in 1919 and chronicling his childhood, school years, and stormy adolescence, the author presents a riveting saga that brings him back to his roots after working as a teacher and coach at a prep school in Hawaii. Outside of Paradise: Growing Up Amish is a distinctive and thoroughly rewarding reading experience, running the gamut from laugh-out-loud comedy to cry-a-bit tragedy, at all times celebrating the triumph of the human spirit. Outside of Paradise shines an autobiographical light on a winsome protagonist on whose side the reader stays to the end. As an Amish memoir, it marches right to the head of the procession for its truth, its frankness, and its sympathetic yet no-holds-barred approach to describing what it meant to grow up Amish.- Don Yoder, Professor Emeritus of Folklore/Folklife, Devon, Pennsylvania As a reader who lived through the Great Depression and World War II, Outside of Paradise takes me back to that time and place in such vivid fashion that time and again I found myself exclaiming, Hey, that was ME! - Howard Blackman, Retired Instructor and Department Head, Lone Pine, California Publisher's website: http: //www.sbpra.com/JBFishe
