Product Description: 

On October 2, 2006, a 32 year old milk truck driver named Charles Roberts entered a one room schoolhouse in the Amish community in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, and shot 10 young girls, killing five, before committing suicide. Just hours after the shooting, Amish community members visited the gunman's family to offer forgiveness. The Amish answers questions about this insular religious community, whose faith and adherence to 500 year old traditions have by turns captivated and repelled, awed and irritated, inspired and confused for more than a century.
