Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"A detailed and well-illustrated history of Florida's unique contribution to architecture."
Michael Gannon
Nothing hand—built so distinguishes the old interior country settings of Cracker Florida as the wood—frame vernacular house. And no architectural historian has captured its essence more sensitively and comprehensively than Ronald W. Haase has done in this wonderful book. I recommend it to every reader of Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings stories and to every devotee of "the Other Florida".
