About this title


The Southeast Michigan countryside is barn heaven, at least for now. The great old post-and-beam barns are still the visual anchors of the landscape. Yet the majority of the old barns that remain are now unused and spoiling. In exploring and photographing those barns, Derek P. Brereton discovered a smattering of craftspeople choosing to practice skills derived from the same agrarian era. Blacksmiths and butchers, spinners and quilters, not only engage in traditional crafts but still manage to turn them to account. These two things, the remaining timber-frame barns and the old agrarian skills, both descend from their common ancestor, the viable family farms that predominated in this countryside until the Second World War. Old Barns and Country Skills of Southeast Michigan is a delightful and insightful journey into a past that is still present in the region, written by a man who practices the traditional craft of producing hickory syrup, held his own barn raising under the auspices of the Michigan Barn Preservation Network, and built a log cabin and birchbark canoe.
