The Big House: A Century in the Life of an American Summer Home by George Howe Colt
The Big House: A Century in the Life of an American Summer Home

smarshall48, October 12, 2007

well written, absorbing, but badly organized. Should start with present day, then go back to very beginning of old house. It's confusing now. Desperately needs chart of family names and generations (domake one and add to clarity while reading!) Next edition, how about some of those family photos referrred to tantalizingly but never shown? We need pix of house at various stages of its life, exterior and interior. Also a map or chart showing situation of house--now extremely murky. And a map showing place names on that part of Cape Cod. Frustrating without illustrations!
