Texas Log Buidlings - A Must for rural Texas history buffs

Once too numerous to attract attention, the log buildings of Texas now stand out for their rustic beauty. This book preserves a record of the log houses, stores, inns, churches, schools, jails, and barns that have already become all too few in the Texas countryside. Terry Jordan explores the use of log buildings among several different Texas cultural groups and traces their construction techniques from their European and eastern American origins. "So well written that it will appeal not only to folklorists and architectural historians but also to anyone who has ever stopped the car on a Sunday afternoon and walked across a pasture to look at an old house." -- Dallas Morning News "What is undoubtedly one of the most important books in recent years on Old West architecture . . . will cause many a reader to dream of owning his or her own log cabin far from the bustle of civilization." -- Frontier Times ." . . will bring a new awareness of a vanishing type of architecture and a fresh appreciation of the surviving log structures." -- Houston Post

Tx Log Buildings--excellent resource

I was a student of Dr. Jordan's at UT Austin in his Geography of Texas class. His lectures on Texas are as good, as I have found out, as his writings. Recommend to anyone interested in the rural history of Texas
