Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This original and manyu-faceted excursion into rural history demonstrates how a conjuncture of current social issues can promote novel ways of reinterpreting the recent past....Good new insights, like the ones found here, enhance our craft."—American Historical Review

"An important addition to the history of domestic architecture."—Reviews in American History

"A useful addition to the growing literature on the relationship between families and the physical structures in which they live."—Journal of Interdisciplinary History

"An excellent, well-written, information-packed book. Anyone interested in agriculture, the rural landscape, or vernacular domestic architecture will find the book valuable."—South Dakota History

"Impressively argued and abundantly illustrated....McMurry makes exemplary use of their words and pictures and also draws upon an imposing mass of other primary and secondary sources. Both her analysis and her bibliography will be helpful to students of nineteenth-century life."—Indiana Magazine of History
