9781574415285: Dog Trots & Mud Cats: The Texas Log House

Log cabins and houses are more than historical curiosities. Throughout the nineteenth century, they were symbols of American frontier ingenuity. Their images were used in political campaigns and on commercial products to represent trustworthiness and quality.

When new building techniques were developed, however, they became representatives of the primitive past that were best left behind. Now log dwellings are making a comeback for urbanites trying to get back to the land.

In 1979, the staff of the Historical Collection at what is now the University of North Texas assembled an exhibit on the Texas log house that was funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities. The exhibit travelled the country and was supported by this beautifully illustrated book, now being made available again by the University of North Texas Press. Chapters cover subjects such as the early building techniques as well as the symbolism attached. Photos record the conditions of those structures still standing in Texas and demonstrate their ingenious re-use.  The book’s design won the 1980 Mitchell A. Wilder Award by the Texas Association of Museums.
