Go behind the beards in this daring insider’s look at the curious Amish subculture of Pennsylvania Dutch Country!Is the “plain and simple” life really so plain and simple
How do the Amish live without cars
The truth is, they don’t. More than fifty million people have watched “Lebanon” Levi Stoltzfus in Discovery Channel’s hit show Amish Mafia, where he dispenses justice and keeps the peace among the seemingly quiet, insular Amish people of Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Now, he reveals what it’s really like to be Amish. Not the buggies, bonnets, and beards image the tight-knit community has portrayed for hundreds of years to the relentless curiosity of outsiders. The real-deal, day-to-day life—the good and the bad—all the dirty little secrets you’re not supposed to know. From Wi-Fi “pleasure huts,” to prostitutes, to marijuana and cocaine, you’ll never look at the Amish the same. It isn’t easy keeping your feet planted firmly in the 1800s when the rest of the world is centuries ahead. Not even for the most God-fearing among us. The Amish have their own unique way of doing everything, and the lengths they will go to indulge in modern conveniences—and hide their indiscretions—will shock you. What have you been dying to know
How about what really happens when someone is shunned
Or whether the Amish pay taxes
Do they ever try to “pass” as English (in other words, non-Amish)
How rampant is illicit sex in such a repressed society
Can individuals make themselves stand out despite the strict rules
Why would the Amish take such risks when the punishment is eternal damnation
“Lebanon” Levi blows the top off the buggy with this scandalous insider’s exposé, proving that even the Amish don’t always practice what they preach.

Truth be told I greatly appreciate the book with the truth about what goes on in the Amish community. We are all human with our good and bad – no matter our religion. It’s an easy and enjoyable read.

Loved it I am so glad I read this book. It really tells the way the Amish live. I still have a lot of respect for the Amish but it was great to read Lebanon Levi’s story. Excellent book. Thank You Lebanon Levi. And I really hope the show comes back on and that you are in it. It would not be the same without you.
