One of the most ambitious studies of the American barn, a vanishing landmark and one of the most "American" of architectural structures. Beautifully illustrated, well researched in all aspects, the study spends a lot of pages on the various building materials involved and the quirkiness of the genre. A "must" for hobbyists and professionals.
