This is quite a handy little book to carry around with you if you're interested in visiting historic homes and buildings throughout the United States. It is broken down into styles and regions of the country. Included are photographs and identifiers that make recognition of American architectural styles immediate. Additionally, there is a concise glossary of terms with photos that helps tremendously as well. Short, to the point, and effective. ( )
