Historic Midwest Houses
To collect the information and pictures of this book, Drury traveled more than ten thousand miles up and down and across mid-America. He tells about eighty-seven houses scattered through twelve states that were built before 1900, and all still standing at the time the book was originally written (1947). In doing so, he presents a sweeping and impressive panorama of Midwestern life and history.
