The Grain Elevator is a quintessential American monument. Mahar-Keplinger's crips yet haunting photographs are works of art, and her text reminds us that the American equivalent of the Gothic cathedral or the Egyptian pyramid is more than just a subject beloved by artists...[It is] a good introduction to the development of the American silo and is about silos as objects of beauty. William Morgan, University of Louisville
Anyone who's ever seen the immense grain elevators scattered like cathedrals across the American landscape will be enchanted with this modest, beautifully-designed and illustrated book. Travel Books Worldwide
