Abstract:

In Building with Logs: Western Log Construction in Context, Jennifer Eastman Attebery addresses aspects of the New Western History by exploring how the log cabin myth is part of the larger myth of the Frontier West. She argues that scholars interested in understanding log construction must look beyond the myth for evidence of the log cabin's particular meanings within the communities that used log buildings in Idaho. We can read those meanings by looking for their implicit expression in such patterns as the choice and quality of construction techniques, the original use of buildings and the reuse of log structures over time.
