Reviews

"The 40 houses and 48 people profiled in this lushly illustrated coffee-table book provide a sense of place for the American Revolution. Hugh Howard's text peoples the bare rooms in the reader's mind, and Straus' photographs give the armchair traveler a good sense of what tourists experience, if not a complete historical accounting." --San Francisco Chronicle


"A must-have library addition . . . if your interest in American history extends to architecture, brief biographies, and juicy domestic gossip." --Sarasota Herald-Tribune


"Could this book get any better?" --Portsmouth [N.H.] Herald
