In hardcover for the first time in a revised edition, and with over 1,000 illustrations, American Shelter — the landmark reference in architectural history — surveys and illustrates every American housing style from Native American days to the present and beyond. Over 100 styles are covered, including 1700s Dutch Colonials and New England saltboxes, Southern plantation mansions, plain Shaker dwellings, whimsical Carpenter Gothics, and modern modular homes, and architect Lester Walker's superb coverage features detailed drawings of each style, including exploded diagrams and floor plans — essential reference to the American dwelling, past and present.
