Whether you love barns or are just an all-around Kansas history buff, you will probably enjoy Kansas Barns and Kansas Barns II by Martha Knudsen. The two-volume set features at least one barn from every county in Kansas, each sketched in accurate and intricate detail by the author. Many of the barns are also accompanied by a brief description and a little historical background.
These attractive books can be an interesting source of information if you happen to spot a barn somewhere in rural Kansas, or they can sit on the coffee table for perusal on those rainy days. They also make excellent gifts.
