7 Reviews
The mills at Wicksbridge are imaginary, but their planning, construction, and operation are quite typical of mills developed in New England throughout the nineteenth century. "Well-researched, ambitious, and absorbing, this is another first-rate history lesson from a practiced, perfectionist hand." -- Booklist, starred review

Beautiful hand-drawn illustrations. A quick but informative introduction into water and steam-powered textile mills. Very approachable and easy to understand. Read full review

Not one, but several mills, in order of construction. Illustrations are less fine and bolder than in previous works like "Cathedral". Read full review
