Book Summary

The South is a region where legend and beauty abound.  From Tennessee's rolling landscapes to Kentucky's verdant bluegrass fields to Virginia's breathtaking mountains and the Carolinas' glistening coasts, the South breathes history and diversity.  A land of enduring cultural heritage that has always beckoned to people seeking a gentle way of life, the South embodies the true spirit of hospitality, a reverence for tradition, and a harmony between the old and the new.  Dignified antebellum plantations sit along scenic riverfronts, sprawling family farmhouses dot pastoral valleys, stately Victorian town houses grace vital urban neighborhoods.  

The South is a celebration of this area as revealed through its indigenous architecture.  More than 250 full-color photographs supported by spirited text capture the beautiful interior and exterior details of the South's domestic architecture and design:  a rustic log cabin in the Appalachian foothills, a grand Italianate mansion in Mississippi, a contemporary Atlantic beach house, an elegant Arkansas Craftsman, and much more.
