The Amish Move West

Listen Now

When you think of the Amish, you might picture the rolling hills of Pennsylvania, but there are Amish communities all over the country. The Amish people are the focus of a documentary airing later this month on PBS. The film focuses partly on Amish who left Ohio for Custer County in southern Colorado. One of the foremost experts on the Amish is Donald Kraybill. He's a professor at Elizabethtown College in Pennsylvania and a key source in the documentary. He speaks with Ryan Warner.
