From the Back Cover:

A significant regional work, Ozark Vernacular Houses focuses on building forms and their relationship to the transmission of cultural ideas. It offers a microcosmic view of how the unwritten, tradition-based methods of house building in Washington and Stone counties in northwest Arkansas were emblematic of the whole region. Far from being the haphazard houses of popular imagination, Ozark houses were based on a few archetypal plans that were carried in the minds of generations of Ozark craftsmen. Over 160 photographs, drawings, and maps provide examples of the four traditional house types - the single pen, the double pen, the dogtrot, and the I-house - and reveal the unity of a distinctive culture in the Arkansas Ozarks. Sizemore's interpretive analysis is not limited to architectural forms. She examines both the inner and outer spaces of the Ozark house. Included in Sizemore's study are the material objects its owners possessed, the way the areas within the house were arranged, the structure within the house, as well as the landscape that formed the backdrop for the house, the yard arrangement, and the barns and outbuildings. Of importance to architects, folklorists, cultural historians, and anyone interested in the Ozarks, this fascinating examination of the Ozark house is a way toward understanding the mind of the inhabitants and their way of life.
