Abstract:

"For roughly a century, the log cabin occupied a central and indispensable role in the rapidly growing United States. Although it largely disappeared as a living space, it lived on as a symbol of the settling of the nation ... Alison Hoagland looks at this once-common dwelling as a practical shelter solution--easy to construct, built on the frontier's abundance of trees, and not necessarily meant to be permanent--and its evolving place in the public memory ... In the twentieth century, the log cabin became ingrained in popular culture, serving as second homes and motels, as well as restaurants and shops striking a rustic note. The romantic view of the past, combined with the log cabin's simplicity, solidity, and compatibility with nature, has made it an enduring architectural and cultural icon."--Dust jacket flap.
