AuthorHouse, Nov 9, 2012 - Architecture - 170 pages
In his book Hope Town: Reality of a Dream Richard L. Seaberg explores through a fictitious story, historical facts and his own ink drawings the architectural development of a special place called Hope Town in the Bahamas. In Part 1 of the book Sarah and The Goat, the reader is brought back to the late 1700s when the Islands of the Bahamas were first settled by Loyalists and relives a way of life that may even be similar to our present day. In Part 2 of the book, Older Houses of Hope Town, the dreams of building a new life are connected with the building of houses that created a community appropriately named Hope Town. The Reality of a Dream has been realized by many in search of a new life in Hope Town from the time it was originally settled until the present. "The tropical setting of swaying palm trees and inspiring blue green waters is like living on the untouched edge of the world." Richard L. Seaberg
