Title: Why I left the Amish: A Talk On Closed Cultures
Guest: Saloma Miller Furlong
Recorded on: 06/07/2012


Saloma Miller Furlong, author of Why I Left the Amish, joined me as she did nearly 20 years ago as a guest on my television program LifeStories. We spoke together on the subject of "Closed Cultures" and how it affected her growing up as a young Amish woman dealing with depression and incest, as well as her thoughts about autism in the Amish community.
