A barn door is a gateway to our colonial past, and anyone who has ever marveled at 12-inch hand hewn beams pegged together centuries ago will love this book. Part personal quest, part historical survey, and part armchair adventure through the lore of American barns, Old Barns in the New World is a must for barn lovers and history buffs alike! Richard Babcock and his sons have used original colonial tools and methods to move, renovate, and restore literally dozens of barns throughout the United States. Lauren Stevens is an acclaimed author and conservationist who has written several books including Hikes and Walks in the Berkshire Hills (Berkshire House), Most Excellent Majesty: A History of Mount Greylock (Berkshire House), and others.
