Where to buy

The Ultimate Book of Historic Barns is a fascinating pictorial essay into the history, geography, symbolism, ethnic roots, design and technology, lore and legend of the richly diverse barns of North America. More than 250 full-color photographs and Robin Langley Sommer’s evocative and authoritative text provide a well-rounded album of these vernacular buildings—the focal point of the family farm when agriculture was a way of life for most people.
