Four hundred artful color and black and white illustrations provided a comprehensive view of houses in the lower Mississippi River Valley. These magnificent homes reflect diverse cultural backgrounds and adaptations to this scenic area, which includes regions of Mississippi, Louisiana, Arkansas, Illinois, Tennessee, and Missouri. Schuler traces the use of the French Colonial, Greek Revival, and Vernacular styles in each region, resulting in a flavorful sampling. Mississippi Architecture is many definitive works incorporated into one volume. Facades, floor plans, and details depict homes built between 1700 and the beginning of the war between the states. This handsome, authoritative work will be indispensable in providing restoration and renovation ideas for one's own home.
