Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
An unfortunate result of progress is that many older technologies or styles are lost to future generations. With preservation in mind, Sloane created the original edition of this title, which has been out of print for 20 years. This reissue is of great value to anyone interested in barns or early Americana. The black-and-white illustrations are simply beautiful, showing the amazing array of barn designs and related agricultural buildings. Sloane also covers barn raisings, smoke houses, and the specific parts of all of these structures. This remarkable book will appeal to those interested in construction, Americana, or rural living; this title should be part of every public library collection.

If you love the good old days and the way things use to be, you will love this book. Great glimpes into the past and after reading this book you will never pass a barn without thinking about, how old it is, how it was built, or what it was used for. Im glade Eric took the time to research old barns for us all.
