A really thorough guide to Texas log buildings. Goes into detail (with maps) to illustrate what joints were used in various localities, what wood species were used, and what other design features were common or unusual. Some of the contacts were shocked the author and his helpers like their houses. The owners were sometimes ashamed of what they had, when they should have been proud to have been the caretakers of something so special. Even if you have never been to Texas, this book can help you understand more about log construction in general. I appreciate all the hard work and dedication needed to research and write this book. Some of the buildings are gone now. Do your part to save what we have left!

The book arrived in great shape, especially for a paperback. I am very interested in early log structures and this book is loaded with historical information and great photos.

Fascinating! A really excellent resource for those interested in the architecture of early Texas homes and buildings. Some examples shown in the book still survive today and it is wonderful to know their history. An important documentation of life in early Texas and an excellent addition to a library focused on Texas. Also a great resource for those interested in folk architecture throughout the country in general.
