Between 1908 and 1940, some 75,000 Sears homes were built. And yet, there has been very little research published on the subject. Rose Thornton's book corrects that oversight handily with this new publication. This labor of love of hers will resonate with architectural historians, kit homeowners and readers of Americana, since the kit house was a uniquely American feature of our architectural landscape.
