Terry Jordan explores the use of log buildings among several different Texas cultural groups and traces their construction techniques from their European and eastern American origins.

Editorial Reviews

Dallas Morning News
So well written that it will appeal not only to folklorists and architectural historians but also to anyone who has ever stopped the car on a Sunday afternoon and walked across a pasture to look at an old house.
Frontier Times
What is undoubtedly one of the most important books in recent years on Old West architecture . . . will cause many a reader to dream of owning his or her own log cabin far from the bustle of civilization.
