Summary, etc.:
"Here is the sweep of life in the flinty corner called New England, where Protestant outcasts started from scratch on rocky land surrounded by mountains and cold shoreline. Through their work and devotion, New England grew into the most industrious, innovative, reserved, and literature-producing area of the United States. Roam its cities, villages, and farms; visit its churches, factories, and graveyards; and look inside its unique houses that, anywhere at any time, are subtle symbols of a civilization. From the crude, earliest post-medieval houses, to refined Georgian, through Federal, Greek Revival, Gothic, Italianate, Empire, Stick Style, Queen Anne, Modern, Colonial Revival, and to the present, follow the evolution of the people, the styles, and the substance of New England"--Provided by publisher.

Author Notes

A Home Called New England

Duo Dickinson (www.duodickinson.com), based in Madison, Connecticut, is a noted architect with more than 30 years of professional practice, he has built over 700 projects in over 10 states, with budgets ranging from $5,000 to $5,000,000. He is recognized as a maverick within the profession. He is the author of seven books on residential design. Steve Culpepper hails from redneck northwest Louisiana and graduated from LSU, where he studied English and history, and interned at LSU Press the same year that it published A Confederacy of Dunces, which won the Pulitzer Prize and for which he can take no credit. He has worked in all forms of print publishing in his long career. A former newspaper reporter and editor, Culpepper later worked in magazine and book publishing at The Taunton Press as well as in book publishing at Globe Pequot Press, where he was editorial director. When he's not squinting at words on a screen he can be found either on a bicycle or hard at work on one of his many unending remodeling and home-improvement projects while staying closely supervised by his wife, Kate. Of the four residences the couple has owned, none has been spared Culpepper's obsession with power tools. He and Kate have two sons: William and David: the first a resident of New Haven, CT, the other a resident of Paris, France.
