Reproductions of oil paintings of pioneer barns built in the 1800s to the early 1900s. Each image is annotated with a personal story or reflection by the author. Artist Ernie Faessler has dedicated his artistic energy to preserving on canvas the heritage of North American barns. This book includes thirty-two color reproductions of his paintings of pioneer barns built during the period of the mid-1800s to early 1900s. Some of these barns still stand in good condition, others have collapsed or are deteriorating from neglect, but many others have been demolished to make way for more modern structures. While many of these barns no longer serve their original agricultural purpose their historical legacy is invaluable - they convey the community spirit and diversity of the pioneers who built them.
