For those interested in the South, history, architecture, historic preservation or the romance of the great plantations, "Lost Plantations of the South" is a must read. Matranga points out that sadly many of the beautiful plantation homes have been lost to time, but he does so with a light touch so that one does not feel regret as much as determination to join the preservation movement. Even without this message, the book could stand alone as an excellent history lesson. Well-researched and with a generous number of photos, floor plans, helpful notes, a Bibliography and index, Lost Plantations is a keeper.

This is an interesting traversal of all the historic homes that have fallen by the wayside in the South. What is eye opening is the number of houses that were intentionally destroyed as late as the 1970s and 1980s, when you would think that historic preservation would have prevented them from being torn down.
