Swedish immigrant farmers who transplanted themselves to the soils of Iowa contributed to a powerful architectural landscape. The barns they built were designed with a combination of practicality and functionality, as well as an identity of individual family roots. Painter Hyatt Moore joined the passion of the University Park Inn and Suites in Ames, Iowa to pay tribute to these monuments of labor and lumber. With over 100 barns, each painted in its own unique style, then with haiku added by the painter, the book is a delight to any fascinated with barn culture, with Iowa landscapes or a colorful and artistic approach to life in general.
