(Gibbs Smith) by Chase Reynolds Ewald

Log Home Living - - Branching Out -

“Pas­sion for rus­tic style has waxed and waned over the decades, but it has never gone out of fash­ion. Like the log cabin it­self, it is an iconic Amer­i­can ex­pres­sion that speaks to our his­tory, our be­lief in the heal­ing power of na­ture and our en­dur­ing de­sire to get away from it all.”

From the mo­ment you dive into the in­tro­duc­tion of “Amer­i­can Rus­tic,” au­thor Chase Reynolds Ewald cap­tures the essence of log home liv­ing. Through ex­quis­ite pho­tog­ra­phy by col­lab­o­ra­tor Au­drey Hall and Ewald’s in­sight­ful prose, they take us down long coun­try roads and moun­tain paths to some of the most pic­turesque and unique log, tim­ber and hy­brid homes in the U.S., while ex­plor­ing top­ics like sus­tain­abil­ity, au­then­tic­ity and build­ing with in­ten­tion.
