About this Item

1963, 265pp, drawings by Pansy Wilcoxon Phillips. Pages 82-83 slightly darkened by an inserted magazine article about this book, else VG in G dj which has two tiny open tears at the top of the spine, and minor chipping. Janice Holt Giles was a well-received author of historical novels. This book, co-authored with her husband, is about the real life construction of their dream log home, built with beams more than 100 years old, in Spout Springs, Kentucky, near where Henry's family had lived for two hundred years. But all of their hard work and dedication is threatened by the Corps of Engineers which plans to build a nearby dam which would cover their home in fifty feet of water. Bookseller Inventory # 12306
