Any book by Eric Sloane is a true gem. This one is no exception. 5 Stars.

Landscape format book. It's a picture book but w/o the pictures. Artwork is hand drawn and is excellent.

Beautiful artwork and a little bit of early americana history about (early) barns made here in america. How there were raised, built, types of wood used, types of joints to hold things together.

A true treasure of a book. I keep my copy and look through it several times every year, and have for several years now.

Highly recommended. And if you can find a copy of his "An Age of Wood" get it. It's another treasure that you'll never want to part with.
