How do you light a room without electricity?
How do you keep warm without centralized heating?
What do you do for entertainment when you don't have TV?
How do you get around without a car?
How do you communicate when you don't have a phone?

Living Without Electricity explains how the Amish cook and store food, pump water, wash clothes, and even run farms and businesses. It describes the practices of other Old Order groups in the United States, Canada, Mexico, and several South American countries.
