Houses in trees, houses on water, houses with wheels! America is a country of diverse people who live in all types of homes--homes made of wood, metal, glass, even snow! In the desert, on a farm, or by the beach, American houses have only one thing in common--they provide shelter and comfort to those who live in them. No matter the size, shape, or location, they are places to call home. This alphabetical survey spans over three centuries of architecture. Vivid illustrations and simple, informative text introduce young readers to the limitlessness of the American imagination. Readers will not only learn about a variety of houses, from yurts to pueblos to farmhouses, but about the variety of people who inhabit them.
