Inhaltsangabe: Stone speaks a rich visual language of texture, colour and patter that no other material can convey. It has inspired American builders for more than three centuries, and architects continue to refer to the traditional construction methods and regional styles that connect stone structures to their natural surroundings. In 200 colour photographs of a vast repertoire of residences, inside and out, this volume traces the development of domestic stone architecture in the United States. Providing general descriptions of featured styles and building techniques, as well as personal histories of the private homes, the text crosses the country as it covers everything from Dutch colonial farmhouses to eclectic Victorian mansions to whimsical stone cottages to modernist expressions by Frank Lloyd Wright and others
