Publisher Comments:

American Shelter is a book for home lovers of diverse interests that clearly describes the evolution of every significant American house style from Indian days to the "now" of space exploration. It is a chronological series of 100 "short stories" for the student of American history and civilization, a magnificently illustrated reference for the architect and builder, an easy-to-use field guide for the traveler and real estate agent, and a history of housebuilding techniques for anyone interested in how the American house was built.
