Overview

Gentle yet commanding presences in the American landscape, covered bridges are national treasures that continue to fascinate us.

With spirited prose and ninety-four full-color photographs, American Covered Bridges celebrates the romance and lore of these rural landmarks. This volume leads you on a visual tour that begins in New England, travels down the Eastern seaboard, and then turns west into the heartland and beyond--with frequent stops along the way to enjoy the varied designs of these bridges.

Each covered bridge has a unique character: the familiar, steep-roofed designs of the rugged structures in Vermont ("the covered bridge state"); the idiosyncratic structures of the South; and the rambling bridges of the Midwest, painted with vintage advertisements.
