About the Author

An avid traveler, accomplished writer, and lifelong resident of Pennsylvania, Bill Simpson also is the author of Guide to Pennsylvania's Tourist Railroads (pb) and Guide to the Amish Country (pb), both published by Pelican.


This guide focuses on Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, the center of Amish culture in America. The author, a Lancaster resident, also covers nearby areas and attractions. There is a brief introduction to the Amish, but a bibliography would have been even more helpful, since there is so much misunderstanding about the Amish and Mennonites. A chapter on visitor's etiquette is sensitive and should help reduce the intrusive impact of tourists in the area. The guide thoroughly presents the usual subjects: motels, restaurants, entertainment, tours, and shopping. There are sections on self-guided tours and bicycling. This useful guide to an interesting area is recommended for travel collections. (Photographs and maps not seen.)-- George M. Jenks, Bucknell Univ., Lewisburg, Pa.

"Practical and detailed travel guide to Amish land-marks and lifestyle."
