Editorial Reviews

The present book draws…two earlier works together, but in a way that is far more than simply the interleaving of separate sections. The new work is more of a discursive and critical study, even more liberally illustrated…. — Traditional Dwellings and Settlements ReviewThis book is an excellent resource for anyone who wishes to learn more about American vernacular architecture in general or for anyone trying to place a house or its design into a larger context. — Journal of the Society for Industrial Archeology
