An unexpected small masterpiece…that has some of the suspense of a detective story and, at times, the poignance of deeply felt, sympathetic social history.
--Robert Campbell, Boston Globe
An important pioneering effort. The book commemorates both an unique indigenous architectural expression and a way of life that has become extinct . . . The style is economic and clear and Hubka's affection for architecture binds the buildings to their people and their times.
--Maine Sunday Times
No matter where you live, you will want this book as a model of vernacular architecture scholarship.
