The Pennsylvania Barn: Its Origin, Evolution, and Distribution in North America (Creating the North American Landscape)

The Pennsylvania Barn: Its Origin, Evolution, and Distribution in North America (Creating the North American Landscape) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the first edition of "The Pennsylvania Barn", Robert Ensminger provided a comprehensive study of an important piece of American vernacular architecture - the forebay bank barn, better known as the Pennsylvania barn or the Pennsylvania German barn. In this revised edition, Ensminger has continued his diligent fieldwork and archival research into the origins, evolution and distribution in North America of this significant agricultural structure. Including an entire chapter of new material, 85 new illustrations and updates to previous chapters, this edition of Ensminger's work should appeal to students and scholars in cultural and historical geography, folklore and vernacular architectural history and American studies, as well as to general readers.

Book News Annotation:

The origins, development, functions, and many different kinds of the impressive barns in Pennsylvania are described in this well illustrated volume by Ensminger (emeritus, geography, Kutztown U., PA). The revised edition includes a lengthy (100-page) new chapter on additional specimens. A glossary, list of additional barns, and Charles Dornbusch's classification system are included. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

"[A] monumental study... This commendable book offers a fitting tribute to what is undoubtedly the greatest contribution of Pennsylvania Germans to the agricultural landscape." — Pennsylvania Mennonite Heritage
