House hunting: Americana (Marshall) #Americana #NetGalley

Are you a person who likes to visit historic homes?  Do you go inside and imagine what it might have been like to live there?  Do you ever see a house and daydream about it being yours?  If, like me, you answer yes to these questions, you may well enjoy Americana.  This book showcases the farmhouses and manors of Long Island, New York.  Homes have been on Long Island since the 1600s when early emigrants settled there.  This book shows the evolution of a number of these homes both their outsides and interiors; in addition, one sees the landscapes that these homes enjoyed.  There are essays to accompany the photos.

Some reviewers have noted faults and inconsistencies in this book.  That is true but, nonetheless, it is a wonderful volume to look at and imagine where a person might live.

Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this book in exchange for an honest review.

  1. Yes, no, and no. I love historic houses, visiting them and hearing the history. But having lived in a 100 year-old farmhouse when I was young, I also know how much work they are to take care of. So I wouldn’t want to own one. But this book looks interesting, because I do love learning about historic houses.
