A Message from The Barn Lady....
American Barns has been available internationally for less than a month and already the number of sales and responses from readers are thrilling. I want to thank from the bottom of my barn-loving heart, each and every one who has purchased a book! By buying from the author you are making a statement that you value the time and dedication that person has given. And, by purchasing your book from the author, you have the opportunity to acquire a personally-signed edition. I hope you love reading American Barns as much as I loved writing it. Many thanks -- The Barn Lady

I was most impressed with the variety of types of information about barns and their histories. I have a large library of barn books which I have read over and over again, yet I learned new things from your book."

"Bunches of wild flowers to Jan Corey Arnett. Being a long time reader of Jan Corey Arnett's articles in the Battle Creek Enquirer, I was delighted to hear that she was writing a book on American barns.... it is way beyond my expectations. The photography is outstanding and she has a way of telling about the origin and history of barns that is simply put, but with so much information .... If you like barns, you will love this book. It is very reasonably priced."
"An enchanting overview...that will grab any reader’s heart with its mixture of history, farming traditions, and frank discussions of preservation issues.... perfect gift...full of heart...."
