Reviews

"Kentucky Barns is unique in the world of photographic barn books, curiously reexamining this seemingly familiar building type and the ways in which it has sheltered the agricultural practices of our ancestors and the cultural identity of the Bluegrass State. Carol Peachee's book artfully embraces a wide array of historic barns--their construction, use, location, and history--presenting the reader with the opportunity to explore all the ways in barns have contributed to Kentuckians' sense of place. As we watch the slow demise of these buildings across the country, this book reminds us exactly what it is that we're losing. "--Danae Peckler, former president of the National Barns Alliance
