About the Author:

Eric Sloane, formerly of Connecticut, was a famous American painter, illustrator, and author who published more than 40 books, including "Diary of an Early American Boy and Museum of Tools."

From Library Journal:

An unfortunate result of progress is that many older technologies or styles are lost to future generations. With preservation in mind, Sloane created the original edition of this title, which has been out of print for 20 years. This reissue is of great value to anyone interested in barns or early Americana. The black-and-white illustrations are simply beautiful, showing the amazing array of barn designs and related agricultural buildings. Sloane also covers barn raisings, smoke houses, and the specific parts of all of these structures. This remarkable book will appeal to those interested in construction, Americana, or rural living; this title should be part of every public library collection.
